CfP CARE Conference "Cities, Action, Research and Education"

Published at: 17 April 2019

Dear colleagues and interested participants,

we are excited to announce our call for paper proposals for the International Urban Studies Conference on Cities, Action, Research and Education taking place at TU Wien in Vienna (Austria) on 20 - 22 November 2019, hosted by the Interdisciplinary Centre for Urban Culture and Public Space at the Faculty of Architecture and Planning, TU Wien. Embedded in the KTH & TU Wien Joint Visiting Professorship Program in Urban Studies at TU Wien, the conference works across urban practice and urban theory. We invite an interdisciplinary public from universities, research institutes, offices, public authorities, activist groups, consultancies, and others to present contributions to the field of urban studies that address aspects of care through foci on research ethics, concepts, methodologies or empirical evidence.

Please send your abstract (250 words) to until 15 May 2019. We look forward to original contributions that address thoughts about care in urban studies in three different themes: I. socio-spatial (in)equalities and the work of care; II. struggles and contestations around care; and III. new care arrangements and civic innovation. For further information, please find the conference call attached to this email and here. Please circulate widely in your networks. Thanks in advance!

Sincerely yours,

Scientific Conference Committee
