CITIES THAT TALK

CITIES THAT TALK

8th AESOP-YA Conference 10-13 March 2014

AESOP Young Academics Network is proud to announce the 8th annual Conference in Gothenburg, Sweden, 10 – 13th March, 2014: Cities that Talk. The conference theme responds to the contemporary phenomena of urban resistances that have significantly challenged traditional practices of urban planning worldwide. Urban resistances range from everyday life insurgencies, through protests and riots, to urban social movements. These resistances request planning systems to stop the invention and authorization of particular traditions, histories, meanings, identities, landscapes, and lifestyles in their cities. Instead, planning systems ought to work through new kinds of institutional arrangements and urban policies that are not only sensitive to the local context but also responsive to the diverse cultural and social identities in a city based on social and environmental justice, wellbeing and quality of life, and coexistence and equal representation. 

This year the conference will be hosted by the Urban Heritage Cluster of Critical Heritage Studies at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, 10-13 March 2014. Young scholars - PhDs, Postdoctors and early career researchers - are invited to submit their contributions to Cities that Talk.

The confernce is free of charge for Young Academics.

Warmly welcome!
