Call for Papers - The UK-Ireland Planning Research Conference 2021

Published at: 17 May 2021

To mark the 75th anniversary of planning education at Newcastle University, the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape is pleased to host the 2021 UK-Ireland Planning Research Conference on 8-10 September, including the RTPI Awards for Planning Research Excellence, a PhD workshop and the Planning Schools Forum (Heads of Schools meeting).

The theme of the conference, Re-imagining the Planning Project, aims to stimulate discussions on how the progressive ideals of creating better places have evolved and what the future holds for the planning project. At a time when multiple and interrelated crises are having devastating effects on people’s lives and livelihoods and on places’ vibrancy and vitality, what could be the role and purpose of planning, and what values and ideals could motivate planning thoughts, educations and practices? We welcome papers that reflect on these and other critical questions about the future of the planning project, and look forward to welcoming you to the 2021 conference.
