Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos Conference Accepting Proposals
Tuesday, September 24, 2013
Island Cities and Urban Archipelagos is an international,
interdisciplinary island studies conference exploring how island status
influences urban development, common attributes of island cities worldwide, and
the opportunities that islandness presents for developing urban cultures and
economies. It will also consider how and why different island cities have
developed in different ways.
The conference will feature presentations on a variety of
subjects relating to urban island culture, government, and economy. A variety
of fields and disciplines will be covered, including anthropology, archaeology,
architecture, arts and design, business, film, folklore, history, literature,
planning, political science, public administration, sociology, and tourism.
Presentations may concern cases from individual cities or take a comparative
approach to understanding what it means to be an urban island.
To propose a presentation, visit the call for papers at www.islanddynamics.org/islandcities.cfp.html.
The deadline for abstracts is 30 April 2014. If you have any questions, please
