Public and Private in Urban Space: The New York Metro American Studies Association invites you to our annual conference on Saturday, October 29, 2005, 9:00am-5:30pm, at Hunter College, CUNY, Room 714 Hunter West, Lexington Avenue at 68th Street, New York, NY 10021.
What are the boundaries of public and private in urban space? How do people move in and out of urban space?
Where does preservation end and fetishization begin? Can the city be a natural space? A pastoral space? Is urban planning a contradiction in terms? How are cities raced? Gendered? Sexed? Policed? What is the relationship between region and city? City and nation?
Panels and a roundtable of academics, artists, and activists will address these questions from the perspectives of history, cultural studies, urban studies, geography, architecture, visual culture, literature, and gender and sexuality studies.
