Rebuilding after the destruction of cities whether caused by natural disasters, the devastation of war, or through wilful annihilation(the city as synecdoche for horror), tests the limits of the spatial and temporal self-understandings of collective life.
In this session, we encourage interdisciplinary papers that examine how catastrophe both dissolves and renews the interpretative borders surrounding the identity of cities.
Please submit Abstracts no longer than 150 words to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the following email heading: Catastrophe Cities. All submissions will be accepted on the basis of a double-blind, peer review.
