Competing Representations of Urban Spaces: Comparative Perspectives of Samara, Vilnius, and Lviv
September 26, 2007
Library, Center for Urban History
Jekaterina Lavrinec from Vilnius Technical University, Lithuania and Oksana Zaporozhets from Samara State University, Russia have presented their joint comparative project on three cities - Samara, Vilnius, and Lviv. The seminar took place at our Center on 26 September 2007 as part of a series dedicated to contemporary urban issues.
Their work focuses on tourists as co-producers and active readers of townscapes and urban signification as an ongoing process of competition of interests and narratives. The discussion of Lviv local trends in the making of post-Soviet urban representations was an important part of a lively seminar, attended also by local students and researchers.
