The CFP is interested in processes of tropical space and place-making, with an emphasis on key areas that make up lived cities in the tropics: creative economies, cultural and natural landscapes, aesthetics, urban myths and story making, sustainable practices, heritage, everyday life, community practices and liminal spaces.

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - 9:30am
American Council for Québecois Studies
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2018

Though often represented as a marginalized or isolated region of the Francophone world, on the one hand, as well as distinct from the rest of the United States, on the other, Louisiana has been situated for more than three centuries at the crossroads of countless cultural, linguistic, and institutional exchanges. Alongside these realities highlighted in recent historiography, contemporary efforts to promote French and Francophones cultures of Louisiana have benefited from numerous international partnerships. In order to explore the international relations and transnational dynamics that have shaped Louisiana from the colonial period until now, we are pleased to accept abstracts for presentations relevant to Francophone Louisiana.

Abstract Submission Deadline: January 11, 2018

If globalisation is characterised by simultaneous networks of information, has the concept of centres become obsolete? Or do certain recent geopolitical developments – the fading of America’s “global leadership” being counterbalanced by the rise of China’s, the latter’s new Belt and Road Initiative promising to become a new Silk Road, Britain’s exit from the EU, and the newly proposed trade agreements between Japan and Europe – put the world on the verge of a radical recentering? Will the burgeoning mega-cities in Asia displace the traditional nation-state in the competition for capital, status and enhanced technologies?
