This conference is intended to encourage interdisciplinary exchange on the representation, cultures, histories, experience, planning, and articulation of global cities. By interrogating the vocabularies that have arisen in several disciplines which might include in addition to the term 'global city', 'global village', 'megacities', 'cosmopolis', imperial metropolis', 'world cities', 'sprawl', 'postmetropolis', etc., the conference will bring together debates over images, narratives, economics, planning and, above all, experience, of the 'global' city. Papers are sought from any relevant discipline in the humanities, social sciences, architecture, urban planning, and beyond.
We will be actively pursuing various publishing outputs related to the conference.
Abstracts of 200 words for 20-minute papers by 28th February 2006. Further information from Dr Lawrence Phillips, email@example.com.
