City One, The First South Asian Conference on the urban experience is being held in Delhi from January 9-11th, 2003. We hope to bring together most people working on the South Asian city, both in India and around the world. The design is to push the idea of the urban seriously in the South Asian context, within the framework of a cross-disciplinary conference, bringing people from different areas (history, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, urban design, architecture, film and media studies) and also including practitioners like architects and urban designers, as well as representatives of urban social movements.
The conference is organised by Sarai, a programme of the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi. Saraiís research emphasis is on urban culture and media.
There are still a few slots available for presentations, and we are calling for proposals. The abstracts must not be more than 150 words and must reach us no later than October 1, 2002. Be sure to also include your full mailing address and contact information.
Please send abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
