For Topic's second event of the year, marking the launch of our third issue on Cities, we made the journey down to London appropriately, given that the panel discussion was an exploration of the challenges of making cities both culturally and economically viable.
The event was held on February 19th, in Borders bookshop in Oxford Street. There were about 90 people there, leading to lively discussion and debate (a little too lively in the case of one rather inebriated audience member).
The event was hosted by David Haskell, Topic's Editor in Chief, and the contributors were Kathryn Firth (Co-Director of the LSE Cities Programme), Professor Nigel Thrift (Bristol University), Professor Saskia Sassen (Centennial Professor of Geography at the London School of Economics) and Denis Hardy (pro-Vice Chancellor of Middlesex University). The talks lasted for about an hour and a half, after which there was time for some questions and refreshments.
