The Transnational Cities network, a new CTCA affiliated research cluster, met for the first time on February 28th 2019. Headed by Malini Guha (Film Studies) and David Hugill (Geography and Environmental Studies), with help from Rebecca Dolgoy, the central aim of this cluster is to develop a new network of Carleton based scholars who are working on urban questions, broadly conceived, that will serve as the basis of research exchange and collaboration across a range of disciplines. The cluster’s first meeting was exceptionally well attended and included scholars as well as graduate students from across the University. All participants offered brief introductions to their respective research areas and then we embarked on a collective brainstorming session on how we might move forward. Next steps include the development of a day long symposium, tentatively planned for winter of 2020, which will enable participants to discuss their research projects in more detail.
