Louis Reid in debate on sustainability, urbanism and globalism

Monday 01 October 2018

SGSD Lecturer Dr Louise Reid recently participated in a public debate held in Dundee University at the Cooper Gallery.

‘Politics of Small Places’ is an ongoing exhibition at the Cooper Gallery bringing together work by contemporary artist and Turner Prize nominee Paul Noble, and pioneering Scottish urban planner Patrick Geddes (1854 – 1932). To celebrate the opening of the exhibition,  Dr Louise Reid, with Dr Lorens Holm (Dundee) and Paul Noble, participated in a public event exploring recent debates on sustainability, urbanism and globalism. It was a sell-out event on a very special evening for Dundee, coinciding with the opening of the new V&A museum in Dundee.
