The RGS-IBG Urban Geography Research Group is holding a 2-day conference at King’s College London at the end of November on the topic of ‘Mobile Urbanisms’.
The conference will focus on the mobile, circulatory and fluid characteristics of cities and urbanisation. The conference seeks to explore how urban spaces and places are produced, reproduced and contested by travelling policies, investment, architectural forms, aesthetic cultures and social norms. It will consider the range of flows, networks, modes and practices of people migrating and moving between and within cities.
Papers and suggestions for the conference are welcomed from researchers at any stage of their careers. We are also planning a session of shorter 4 min presentations if you would like an opportunity to share your research and research interests to the conference.
The deadline for 200 word abstracts for full paper presentations is Friday 21 September 2012, and the registration deadline is 5pm, Friday 26 October 2012. Conference fees are £75 waged, £35 student/unwaged.
