An online conference hosted by the Urban Environments Initiative

Call for Papers Deadline: 19 April 2021

The Urban Environments Initiative (UEI) is welcoming submissions for its online conference “Irritations and Unforeseen Consequences of the Urban.” Over the past two years, the UEI has brought together scholars from a range of international institutions to critically engage and exchange expertise on various aspects of the urban, and this from a variety of disciplinary viewpoints. For the first time, we will be holding a conference that will have UEI members present their work while inviting external participants to present their work as well.
The threeday conference will be held via Zoom from 30 June to 2 July and will run tentatively from 14:45–18:15 (CET) each day. The conference is organized around three themes that focus on different aspects of “Irritations and Unforeseen Consequences of the Urban”:

Theme 1 Who’s Urban “Nature”?
The Politics of Aesthetics, Urban Ecologies, the Unintended and the Unwanted

Theme 2 Making Urban Environments

Planning, Agents, Voices, and Absences/Gaps, Livelihoods and Extinction, Power, In-/justice

Theme 3 Openness to or Foreclosure of Futures

The Ethics and Politics of Expectation and Modulation

The conference invites paper submissions that relate to one of the three themes mentioned above. Please submit a 250-word abstract in addition to a 150-word bio. Successful applicants will be contacted shortly after the submission deadline. Please send your submissions to urbanenvironments[at]rcc.lmu.de by 19 April 2021
