THE FUTURE OF CITIES
Early Career Workshop, 23 October 2013 – University of Oxford
The Oxford Programme for the Future of Cities invites submissions for this year’s Future of Cities Early Career Scholars workshop. The workshop will take place on the 23 October as part of the international symposium ‘The Flexible City’ that will gather more than 35 key scholars and practitioners.
The workshop is aimed at a selected number of early career academics working in the field of urban studies, especially at postdoc and junior faculty levels. The Programme will also consider abstracts from outstanding PhD students in their final year. Papers should match one or more of the four core research themes of the Programme’s ‘Flexible City’ agenda (see below), engage with original research geared towards discussing the future of cities and the contemporary challenges faced by urban dwellers.
The workshop provides a unique opportunity to engage with peers and more senior colleagues to discuss innovative urban research and the challenges of careers in urban studies. Workshop participants will then be invited to join the following two-day symposium, on 24 and 25 October at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford. The Programme will support accommodation and meals throughout the whole event.
Please submit by 31 August 2013 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org a 250-word abstract and a brief 100-word biographical note including up to two of your most recent publications. Results will be announced by 15 September 2013.
