We invite abstracts for papers that address the city as an emergent entity, and which seek to make visible some of the modes through which multiple scales of urban time and space that are ordinarily invisible to each other, intersect and collide.

Long abstract:

We invite abstracts for papers that address the city as an emergent entity, and which seek to make visible some of the modes through which multiple scales of urban time and space that are ordinarily invisible to each other, intersect and collide. In particular we invite abstracts to explore three interrelated facets of the city: its capacity to become toxic to its inhabitants, its capacity to forget itself and to generate sites of amnesia and its capacity to change in ways that seem to exceed the agency of its citizens. Cities may be ancient or contemporary and real or imagined, and we anticipate Latourian and Deleuzian theory to provide points of departure for these explorations.
