In a world where inequality and poverty are growing remorselessly, where you are, and where you happen to have been born, continue to determine, how, and in indeed whether, you live. From the urbanization of the human species and the burgeoning of slums to the rise of the modern gated community; from ‘Fortress Europe’ and the Israeli ‘security wall’ to land reform in South Africa; questions of space and place are central to some of today’s most bitterly contested political issues.
What might an analysis of politics which focuses on the operation of power through space and place, and on the spatial structuring of inequality, tell us about the world we make for ourselves and others?
This is an international interdisciplinary conference. We anticipate that these and related issues will be of interest to people working in, among others, philosophy, ethics, political theory, politics, sociology, social policy, globalisation, international relations, cultural studies, history, architecture, photography, geography, planning, refugee studies, migration studies, urban studies and area studies. For the full call for papers please visit the CAPPE website.
The final call for papers is now open. Abstracts of 300 words should be sent by email as soon as possible. The final deadline is 30 April.
