Prof Hyun Bang Shin is to give the keynote address at an upcoming virtual symposium organised jointly by York University, Canada and by the Centre for the Study of Korea at the University of Toronto. The symposium, rescheduled from its original spring schedule, is to address ‘Making and Unmaking of the Speculative City: Urban Politics in South Korea’, and will take place on Friday 6 November 2020.

Hyun’s keynote address is titled, ‘Whither Progressive Urban Futures? Critical Reflections on the Politics of Temporality in Asia’, which would build upon his recent paper with the same title from the journal CITY.
