The Reconstruction of Ukraine

September 9–11, 2022

*University College London*

/The Reconstruction of Ukraine /is an upcoming symposium that focuses particular attention to cities, architecture, art, culture and psychological trauma – but the scope of the conversations it aims to start is broader. In due course, the discussions led and held by over forty international speakers during the symposium may coalesce into myriad projects, initiatives and experiments undertaken by government institutions, municipalities, educational and cultural bodies and other more interstitial actors. The ambition of this symposium is to establish a platform for dialogue, facilitating communication, collaboration and constructive argument between diverse actors and initiatives.

The symposium will take place over three days from September 9—September 11, 2022 (7am–4pm EDT / 12–8pm GMT+1 / 2–10pm GMT+3). To register, please follow this link https://reconstruct.in.ua.

Day one of the symposium is titled “Ruination, Resistance, Shelter: Responses to the Direct Impact of War.” It will feature an introductory panel followed by discussions related to ecocide, urbicide, displacement, cultural heritage, and infrastructure. Day two is titled “Representation, Mourning, Memory: Working Through War.” This section will discuss trauma, grief, mourning, war and the arts of witness, historical narratives, and institutional practices. The third and final day is titled “Solidarity, Appropriation, Justice: Generating Common Futures.” This section will discuss masterplanning, microplanning, restitution, the political economy of reconstruction, reconciliation, retribution, and international solidarity.
