Call for Papers: Spaces and flows 2012: Third international conference on urban and extraurban studies

Welcome to the Spaces and Flows: Third International Conference on Urban and ExtraUrban Studies. The conference will be held at Wayne State University, Detroit, USA from 11-12 October 2012.

This conference aims to critically engage the contemporary and ongoing spatial, social, ideological, and political transformations in a transnational, global, and neoliberal world. In a process-oriented world of flows and movement, we posit, the global north and global south now simultaneously converge and diverse in a dialectic that shapes and transforms cities, suburbs, and rural areas. This conference addresses the mapping of, the nature of, and the forces that propel these processural changes. Our 2012 conference will also address the Special Theme – Transforming Cities and Communities in Contemporary Times.

We invite prospective participants to submit a presentation proposal for one of the following parallel session options: a 30-minute paper; a 60-minute workshop; a jointly presented 90-minute colloquium session; or a virtual session. We also encourage innovative presentation formats, such as roundtables, staged dialogues, screenings and performances. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream forms a talking circle, an informal forum for focused discussion of issues and conference themes.

Spaces and Flows: An International Journal of Urban and ExtraUrban Studies

All registered participants (including virtual participants) have the option to submit papers to Spaces and Flows: An International Journal of Urban and ExtraUrban Studies. Papers submitted for publication will be fully refereed through a peer review process. The publication decision is based on the referees’ reports.
