Los Angeles, USA
4-5 December 2010
This conference aims to critically engage contemporary spatial, social, ideological, and political transformations in a transitional world. In a process-oriented world of movement, the global north and global south now simultaneously converge and diverge in a dialectic that shapes and transforms cities, suburbs , and rural areas. This conference addresses the nature and mapping of these forces and the dynamics that propel these changes. The conference also examines and defines the myriad of different spaces that make up our contemporary world, including urban, edgeurban, de-urban, micro-urban, greenfield, and off-the-grid.
Plenary Speakers Include:
o Edward Soja, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
o Michael Dear, University of California, Berkeley, USA
In addition to plenary presentations, the Spaces and Flows Conference includes parallel presentations by practitioners, teachers, and researchers. We invite you to respond to the conference Call-for-Papers. Presenters may submit their written papers for publication in the peer reviewed ‘Spaces and Flows: An International Journal on Urban and Extraurban Studies’. If you are unable to attend the conference in person virtual registrations are also available which allow you to submit a paper for referring and possible publication. You also have the ability to upload your presentation to the Space and Flows YouTube channel.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short abstract) is 18 November 2010. Future deadlines will be announced on the conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks of submission.
