City Talks cancelled for Fall 2020/Spring 2021

Due to the uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the City Talks lecture series will not be taking place during Fall 2020/Spring 2021. We hope to resume the City Talks in Fall 2021 but will reassess the situation at that time. In the meantime, you can access videos of many of the City Talks from over the past decade at our website ( Our most recent Spring 2020 series on 'Changing Memoryscapes in the City' is particularly relevant to current debates over statues, monuments, and place names in cities and is available for viewing at The year 2020 marks the 10-year anniversary of the City Talks series, and we would like to thank everyone who has made the City Talks possible, especially our sponsors, organizers, and everyone who has attended the City Talks over the years. We hope everyone stays safe and we wish you all good health over the next year.
