Geographer Tim Edensor talks about his research on industrial ruins. He argues that ruins act as sites from which to criticise contemporary forms of urban space. He highlights four aspects of this, suggesting that ruins offer a critique of how cities regulate:

1. practices – what we can do

2. sensations – what can feel

3. aesthetics – how places are regulated through design and architecture

4. the past – how the ‘heritage’ industry regulates our understandings of history

The talk took place in the Geilston Hall, Cardross, on 23.3.2012.
