Summary: Poverty and disadvantage have become synonymous with the city of Glasgow. In tackling these problems, Professor McKendrick will assert that we must not lose sight of the human resource that is suggested by the city’s favourite marketing mantra: People Make Glasgow. A more prosperous Glasgow need not to be one that dismisses the importance of the resources that enriched the Glasgow of yesteryear. The lecture will draw on autobiographical accounts of professional footballers who grew up in Glasgow, passing conversations overheard on the street and in the pub, the cartography of the city’s changing urban fabric, evidence of poverty and multiple deprivation and a lifetime of being in and around the city. Professor McKendrick will consider the ways in which the city has been portrayed and understood through the seminal accounts of Sidney Checkland, Michael Pacione, Carol Craig and the Glasgow Centre for Population Health, among others. Taking account of the challenges that the city faces today and tomorrow, he will then reflect on the ‘common wealth’ of Glasgow’s past, present and future.
