BFU 5: West End’s Shrinking Public Realm:

April 13th, 2013

9 April 2013

'West End's Shrinking Public Realm: Development, disadvantage and culture in Brisbane's most inclusive neighbourhood,' with presentations by Peter Walters, who focused on a sociological analysis of urban development, and Cameron Parsell, who explored identities and the meaning of home, in the context of his research with people sleeping rough around West End and elsewhere.

*One of the highlights of this session was the open discussion following the presentations.  Unfortunately, the recorder didn't pick up the questions, but the speakers' responses are well worth the listen.
