Poland – CFP: Heritage Forum of Central Europe: The City

Poland – CFP: Heritage Forum of Central Europe: The City

September 16–18 2015, Krakow

Cities, as mirrors and hallmarks of our civilisation, some of the most spectacular human inventions, are phenomena which challenge full understanding. They are multilayered compositions of social interactions, economics, infrastructure and a growing number of inhabitants. As Jane Jacobs has said, they are a complex problem of interacting factors that are interrelated into an organic whole; at the same time they generate problems of climate change, crime and inequality and, on the other hand, originate creative solutions as well as hopes and dreams for many. Analysing the city brings together researchers and practitioners from various disciplines: urban planners, economists, sociologists, social psychologists, anthropologists, historians and art historians.

It is this interdisciplinarity and innovation that the organisers hope to attract to the debates and sessions of its 3rd Heritage Forum of Central Europe focused on “The City”. Plenary discussions, lectures and parallel sessions (resulting from the call for papers) will deal among other issues with historic urban landscape, creative heritage cities, cities’ narrations, ownership of cities, revitalisation practices and cities’ resilience.

The call for papers encourages you to submit your proposals (a maximum 150-word abstract in English with a short bio) by February 20, 2015 – see the details (PDF).
