CfP: Making Cities, Cities in the Making: Moments of Arrival, Appropriation and Resistance

Open Penal at the 18th IUAES World Congress “World (of) Encounters: The past, present and future of anthropological knowledge”
Federal University of Santa Catarina, Florianópolis, Brazil, 16-20 July 2018.

Cities are not neutral sites in which people enter. They are not only physically built but are perceived, narrated, interpreted and imbued with power relations (Massey/Jess 1995). People experience places with their specific socio-spatial relations depending on their positionalities, including class, race/ethnicity, gender and religion. Spatial organization is integral to the production of social relations and power relations and not merely its result (Massey 1994).

Please note the quick turnaround for this call. Deadline approaching: 28 February 2018!
