Call for papers: spaces and flows sixth international conference

Deadline: 17 July 2014 - 12:00am

Dates: 15 - 16 October 2015


Where: Chicago, USA

Venue: University Center Chicago

Conveners: Spaces and Flows Knowledge Community

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.

We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types) addressing spaces and flows through one of the following themes:

1) Urban and Extra-urban Spaces

2) Human Environments and Ecosystemic Effects

3) Material and Immaterial Flows

Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered. For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see Our Focus.

We also offer participation options for those individuals who cannot attend the conference. Authors who wish to submit an article for potential publication in the Spaces and Flows Journal may submit a Proposal for Article Submission, while all members of the knowledge community with an accepted proposal may submit an online presentation to the knowledge community YouTube channel.
