Storying Sheffield

Friday 3 May, Owen Hatherley on Pulp and the City

In the City: talks and events about Sheffield and beyond.
On Friday 3 May, Owen Hatherley, author of Uncommon, kicks off the month-long Faculty of Arts and Humanities events series ‘In the City: talks and events about Sheffield and beyond’.
He will speak from his book, which charts the ways in which post-industrial Sheffield, its modernist buildings and flawed urbanism infuses many of Pulp’s finest songs. The event is in anticipation of the forthcoming launch of the Sheffield Music Map app, a collaboration between Sensoria, the UK’s festival of music, film and digital and Dr Matthew Cheeseman of the School of English.
Tickets are free but limited, please register for yours at
Other events in the series include keynote talks by Lynsey Hanley (author of Estates) on 14 May and Tristram Hunt MP (24 May)
Details for all the events, including films, theatre performances, music and poetry, can be found at
