We’re currently soliciting papers for ‘On the Spatial Epistemology of Politics, or How We Know Politics Through Space: Essays for Design Studies,' a forthcoming edited book that explores how spaces are political and how politics is spatial. Co-edited by Harvard PhD candidates Delia Wendel and Fallon Samuels Aidoo, the book is funded in part by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts. The deadline for submission is next Monday, April 08, 2013 via the website www.spaceandpolitics.org.
We are soliciting papers from a wide range of disciplinary and geographical concentrations to explore how spatial practices and forms produce knowledge of political conflict and consensus. What knowledge of politics is produced through space? How have the politics of contention and consensus affected our built environment, and vice versa? Through spaces of protest, occupation, segregation, neglect, and spaces of deliberation, negotiation, reconciliation, and commemoration, we have become familiar with the production of space as a mode of political consciousness, representation and engagement. Our global history is replete with examples of these political spaces arising from explicit designs for political purposes or transformations through politicization ex post facto. This call for papers solicits original research to explore the politics of contention and consensus in spatial forms and practices.
The full Call for Papers and recent press on the book and its editors can be found at www.spaceandpolitics.org. You can also directly contact co-editors Delia and Fallon at: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
