Speaker information

Dr Claire Dwyer, UCL Geography

Suburbs are conventionally imagined as monotonous, monocultural, materialist and secular, but recent research in West London contradicts this, suggesting that suburbs are shaped by dynamic multicultural connections. Dr Dwyer will argue that creativity and modernity are important elements in the changing geographies of religious architecture in the suburbs.
