Re-Figuration of Spaces: Mediatization, Mobility, Globalization and Social Dislocation
The collaborative research center “Re-Figuration of Spaces”(SFB 1265) cordially invites to their first international conference at Technische Universität Berlin.
The research center investigates changes in contemporary spatial arrangements with an emphasis on digital technologies and transnationalization with the goal to determine the characteristics of the so-defined “re-figuration of spaces”. Therefore, a variety of subjective spatial experiences and knowledge production practices are investigated. This includes a more thorough examination of how emerging spatial structures are conditioned by increased interconnectedness of places and the circulation it implicates.
This conference thematizes how spaces change through mediatization, increased mobility, globalization and social dislocation. Which forms of arrangements, spatialities and materialities underwrite these processes? How are spaces negotiated and (visually) communicated? These questions will be explored in a variety of lectures, plenaries and paper sessions with international scholars as well as scholars from the collaborative research center SFB 1265.
Keynote Speaker: Craig Calhoun
Plenary Speakers: Gurminder K Bhambra, Jennifer Robinson, Gillian Rose, Eva Ehninger, Roberto Patricio Korzenieviwcz, Michael Storper.
Registration until February 10, 2019 on the conference homepage.
