19 June 2014 : AESOP discussion on the New Urban Agenda

AESOP is urgently inviting its members to contribute to the New Urban Agenda discussion, launched last week as part of Habitat III, via this blog.

Habitat III, the Third United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, will take place in 2016, and UN-Habitat is in the process of asking local authorities and other Habitat Agenda Partners for their assistance in structuring the Habitat III meetings and formulating a New Urban Agenda. AESOP has been asked to put forward suggestions and will respond directly and via its counterpart GPEAN despite a rather short deadline: the 25th June, 2014.

 

6 June 2014 : Becoming Local Paris Meeting, Call for Abstracts (Deadline: Monday, July 7th, 2014)

We invite you to submit an abstract for a contribution to the interdisciplinary conference and workshop "BECOMING LOCAL: Transforming spaces, redefining localities", which will take place from 23 to 25 October 2014 in Paris, France. 

The event is organized by the Laboratoire Architecture Anthropologie (LAA) and the AESOP Thematic Group “Public Spaces and Urban Cultures” and is dealing with the conflicts arising between the local and global scale in contemporary urban transformations. 

Submissions are encouraged from all disciplines and research perspectives. We are in particular interested in papers that through the lens of case-studies explore, discuss and question the various notions and categories used to describe local identities, as well as disputes and misunderstandings that their use might generate or reinforce.

The deadline for abstract submission is Monday, 7 July 2014.
Submit to becominglocalparis2014@
gmail.com.

For more information about the event, please follow the link below.

Thank you in advance for distributing this call among your colleagues and professional networks.
