Call For Papers

What do philosophers have to say about urban life?
Can they help solve the challenges of today’s urban environment?
Is there a need for a new philosophy, a new philosophy of the city?

Building on the success of the 2013 conference in Brooklyn New York, the 2014 meeting in Mexico City examines these questions in an international, 21st century, globalized and fully urbanized context. We welcome presentations in any area of philosophy of the city. Topics of interest include:

Ÿ What is “Philosophy of the City?”
Ÿ Is “Philosophy of the City” philosophy for the city?
Ÿ How long should Rosa ride? Ethics of commuting and transportation
Ÿ Architecture & urban aesthetics
Ÿ The city, polis and demos in the history of philosophy
Ÿ Big data, surveillance and social epistemology
Ÿ Is mold the new lead? Justice and urban public health
Ÿ The intimate limits of local democracy
Ÿ The Capabilities Approach in urban planning
Ÿ Spatial Racializations of the urban: slum, sprawl, street, and ghetto
Ÿ International law and the global city
Ÿ City identity: understanding, framing and context
Ÿ Decolonizing cities
