Program Information

School:University of East London - Graduate Programs
Field of Study:Architecture (BArch, BA/BS, MArch, MA/MS, PhD)
Description:The MRes in Architecture “Reading the Neoliberal City” analyses the impact of capitalist neo-liberalism on development. It examines neo-liberal policies over the last 30 years and their effects on urban layout, property markets, architectural form and social justice. Topics for study include the privatisation, monetisation and polarisation of cities and the consequences for their citizens in terms of trust and fear. Architecture at UEL is based in our Docklands campus, in a pioneer area for neo-liberal models of development and a key study site for the course.

Equivalent to the first year of a PhD, the course is led by Doug Spencer and Anna Minton, and has two key components. Spencer’s modules focus on critical writing about the city, while Minton’s investigate contemporary policy and politics. These include the privatisation of public space, and the politics of housing and urban policy. Students also write their own thesis. While London is the focus, the global impact of these processes are relevant across the world. Each year, the course will include an international workshop, based in a different European city.
