A City Is Not a Park: A short talk from New Generation Thinker Des Fitzgerald

des-fitzgerald

Part of BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival 2019

The Barbour Room

Tickets available on the day on a first come, first served basis

THIS EVENT HAS PASSED

A city is not a park – but should it be? This essay from New Generation Thinker Des Fitzgerald tracks the psychic life of the city through the relationship between the modern city and its green environs. Drawing together psychological research with urban history and literature it asks: what would change, psychologically, socially, emotionally, if we covered the concrete and brickwork of our towns and cities with vines, plants and vertical gardens?

Des Fitzgerald is a sociologist at Cardiff University who is researching health, illness and city living.

Come and hear this recording of an episode of BBC Radio 3’s The Essay with a chance to ask questions about the topic.

New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to select 10 academics each year who can turn their research into radio.
