You are invited to join us for the second event in the RMIT Centre for Urban Research’s (CUR) bi-monthly Justice in the City seminar series.

Seminar 2: Whose City? Memory and Representation

How do urban memorials shape experiences of city space and enact forms of justice? Which sorts of bodies are given space, and how might a memorial’s form shape its social effects? Join us to discuss memorialisation and justice in the urban setting.

Chair: Dr Peta Malins – RMIT Centre for Urban Research


  • Dr Shanti Sumartojo, Architecture and Design, RMIT University
  • Dr Peta Malins, Justice and Legal Studies, RMIT University

The Series has been designed in partnership with the Sustainability and Urban Planning and Justice and Legal Studies programs, both in the RMIT School of Global, Urban and Social Studies. It aims to build a conversation and develop a community of researchers and practitioners in this interdisciplinary urban research area.
