This seminar will introduce Dr Louise Nash’s recently published monograph ‘The lived experience of work and city rhythms: A rhythmanalysis of London's Square Mile’. 

Seminar abstract

Louise will be introducing her recently published monograph, which is based on empirical research carried out over a number of years in the City of London – the heart of the UK’s financial services sector. Explaining how the City is experienced as a workplace, the book presents a method of researching such places through an attention to, and analysis of, their spatial and temporal rhythms. We are delighted to welcome Philip Hubbard, Professor of Geography at Kings College, The University of London, Patricia Lewis, Professor of Management at Kent Business School, the University of Kent, and Dawn Lyon, Reader in Sociology at the University of Kent, who will act as panel discussants.

 

How to attend this seminar

This seminar is free to attend with no need to register in advance.

We welcome you to join us online on Wednesday 15 June at 12pm.
