"Future of Cities / Future Beyond Cities"


In the last decades, cities around the world have experienced unprecendented economic, political, social, and spatial transformations. As these changes bring new challenges for the ways in which we categorize the boundaries of the urban and the definitions of the city, urban theorists have been condering the possibilities of the twenty first century bringing in post-urban stage.

This seminar invites abstracts which reflect on this notion of the post-urban, the spatial, political and socio-cultural transformations that this brings about around the world, as well as its representation in literature and in cinema from interdisciplinary perspectives.  Your paper proposals may be submitted through the ACLA website:
