CFP Connections: Exploring Heritage, Architecture, Cities, Art, Media

As the Western world comes to deeper understandings of its heritage in the 21st century, technology is ever more present in our reading of the past. Data mapping is standard in conservation and social history; archaeologists use digital tools in laser scanning and geophysics; landscape and architectural visualizations populate museums across the world. As the tools we use today merge and blur across disciplines, this conference asks educators and professionals to consider how can we best manage the unique potentialities of this interdisciplinary and technological moment, rethink objects of art and design from the past and future, and more. Conference dates are June 29-30, 2020 at the University of Kent, Canterbury, UK. More

Submissions from graduate students across disciplines and those working in the arts including but not limited to writers, critics, curators, artists and arts educators. Submit a 300-word abstract (with working title), CV, and a description of any necessary support and/or technical needs beyond a standard microphone to berkelystanford2020@gmail.com. More

CFP: The City and Complexity—Life, Design and Commerce in the Built Environment

2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Jane Jacobs' The Economy of Cities. It came a decade after her seminal work, The Death and Life of Great American Cities, and heralded a new age in thinking about the city. The city would no longer be a question of design and planning in isolation. From the early 1970s onwards, it would be seen as a complex, interdisciplinary phenomenon. Seeing the urban phenomenon as not reducible to single issues, this AMPS conference asks you to bring your disciplinary expertise to a forum examining the city through the lens of complexity theory—as inevitably fragmented but simultaneously interconnected and changing.

CFP Power to the Margins II: Mobilizing Across Housing Injustice (March 12-14, 2020)

Academics across the social sciences and humanities have long worked to theorize the people, spaces, and politics of the fringes of traditional housing. Homelessness, eviction, squatters’ rights, and the right to land all find their way into fruitful interdisciplinary scholarship, much of which links these struggles to broader questions of citizenship, governance, and exclusion. Meanwhile many of the same root problems motivate housing activists around the globe. These community organizing struggles create grounded, pragmatic critiques and strategies, as activists deploy popular education to empower those immediately affected and often situate their work within broader social justice movements, including labor, criminal justice, environmental, ethnic, racial, and caste struggles.
