The Urban Studies Program at Simon Fraser University (http://www.sfu.ca/urban) invites scholars and practitioners from all fields to submit paper proposals for a symposium entitled “Global Games and Local Legacies: Understanding Olympics Outcomes in Host Cities,” to be held in Vancouver, Canada, from October 22-24, 2009. The symposium will involve organized panels, moderated discussion, and an open forum for ideas about urban Olympics outcomes research. The panels will be held at the Vancouver and Surrey campuses of SFU, and the symposium will also include organized field visits through sites that merit special attention and monitoring for their post-Olympic legacy on Metro Vancouver’s urban fabric. Presentations of both completed scholarship and research at the more
exploratory stage are welcome, as is graduate student work. The symposium will be followed by a selective, peer-reviewed publication of the proceedings.
Proposal Submission Deadline: July 15, 2009
Please send a proposal with a title, 3-5 keywords, and an abstract of 250 words or fewer, including your full name, position, and contact information by July 15, 2009 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate on your proposal whether you wish to apply for one of the limited travel grants available for presenters who produce a complete paper. Your submission will be reviewed by SFU faculty and you will be
contacted by August 15.
