Call For Papers

The Department of Architecture at the University of Cyprus will host the next meeting of the AESOP Thematic Group for Public Spaces and Urban Cultures (AESOP TG PSUC) in Nicosia, Cyprus. This meeting is in the frame of the new thematic series: Unstable Geographies – Dislocated Publics and is organized in parallel to the Cyprus Network of Urban Morphology conference “Urban Morphology in South-Eastern Mediterranean Cities: challenges and opportunities”.

The purpose of the meeting is to unfold, discuss, challenge and rethink prevailing discourses concerning the manifestations of (in)justice in cities’ urban spaces, by taking an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary perspective. As implied in its title, “THE URBANIZATION of (IN)JUSTICE: Public spaces in uncertain geographies”, the meeting is conceived as space of exchange aiming to involve researchers and practitioners alike in a critical and constructive debate on political and intellectual agendas that reflect on the development of socially just urban practices.

The 3 days event will combine the keynote speeches of both CyNUM and AESOP Public Spaces and Urban Cultures meetings, the contributions to the call for papers in parallel sessions, field visits and a workshop. The workshop will provide the opportunity for participants to discuss, exchange views, and propose ideas in relation to contemporary urban form and public space concerns in uncertain geographies. A concluding roundtable discussion will consolidate the ideas, concerns and recommendations presented during the meeting, and set the basis for further practical and theoretical explorations.
