The Racial Dot Map

“This racial dot map is an American snapshot; it provides an accessible visualization of geographic distribution, population density, and racial diversity of the American people in every neighborhood in the entire country. The map displays 308,745,538 dots, one for each person residing in the United States at the location they were counted during the 2010 Census. Each dot is color-coded by the individual’s race and ethnicity. The map is presented in both black and white and full color versions. In the color version, each dot is color-coded by race”.

2015 UAA Conference: Call for Participation
April 8-11, 2015
Intercontinental Miami, 100 Chopin Plaza Miami, FL 33131
Call for Participation
Conference Policies -(Proposal submission starts July 1, 2014)

• Review the conference policies for proposal submission, registration, & presentation scheduling.
• English is the official conference language. All abstracts, session proposals, papers and presentations must be prepared in English.
Proposal Submission: Participation Formats (Proposal submission starts July 1, 2014)
• Individual paper presentation
Individuals may submit a proposal to present a researched-based paper. If your paper proposal is accepted, the program committee groups it with three or four other related papers into a panel. Each panelist presents his or her paper, and an open discussion follows the presentations. Each panel includes a moderator, who manages the time and introduces the panelists. Panel sessions are 80 minutes in length.
• Poster presentation
A poster is an alternative way to present the results of a research paper. However, a poster is not simply a set of full text pages of a research paper pinned to a board. To make a poster presentation, an author must prepare a set of printed pages that show the major components of her/his research study in a very concise and visually interesting manner. As a poster presenter, you have a unique opportunity to directly explain your work to colleagues who share your interests. A proposal for a poster presentation requires the submission of an abstract and full contact information for each author and co-author.
• Breakfast roundtable
A breakfast roundtable is an informal discussion of a topic during breakfast. The discussion is led by one or more persons but open to anyone who wishes to join in and share his or her views. If more than one person will lead the roundtable, only the primary leader must submit a proposal.
• Organized colloquy
A colloquy is a structured, formal discussion of a topic by a group of pre-selected individuals (typically four or five people). A colloquy proposal is submitted by an organizer who has invited individual speakers to participate in the proposed discussion.
• Organized panel
An organized panel consists of a pre-selected group of papers that are identified by an organizer. The organizer submits the abstract and contact information for each paper’s author(s).
• Volunteer moderator
This option is designed for those who wish to actively participate in the conference but who are not involved in any of the session types/roles described above. Do not choose this option if you are presenting a paper/poster or serving as a colloquy speaker or breakfast roundtable convener.

The Cultures of the Suburbs International Research Network – Call for Papers

The Cultures of the Suburbs International Research Network

2014 Conference: Imagining the Suburbs – Thursday 19 to Saturday 21 June 2014- University of Exeter, Exeter, UK

 Confirmed Keynote Speakers: Professor Roger Keil, Director of the City Institute at York University, Toronto, and author, poet and broadcaster Michael Rosen. The Cultures of the Suburbs Research Network will host its 2014 conference, Imagining the Suburbs, at the University of Exeter, UK, from 19 to 21 June 2014.

 How do we imagine / re-imagine the world’s suburbs in the twenty-first century? How do current concepts of suburban space and experience sit with past ideologies and future planning? And how do these vary across different regions and in different social and political contexts? Are the suburbs unimaginative and outdated, or are they spaces for progress and change? And what part do (or might) the ‘cultures of the suburbs’ play in shaping and representing these environments?

 We invite proposals for individual 20-minute papers or for panels comprising three or four papers from a range of disciplines including (but not limited to) the Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, and applied fields such as Architecture, Design and Planning. Areas of possible interest include (but again, are not limited to): the nature and meaning of cultural life in the suburbs; music and theatre (including amateur dramatics); visual culture (art, photography, digital modes); iconography; community radio and other forms of media; poetry, fiction, memoir, film & television; social networking; culture shock; faith communities / sacred spaces; religious spaces and practices; oral histories; local histories; archiving the suburbs; the rhetoric of the suburbs; language and dialect in the suburbs; teaching and researching the suburbs; working with students; learning from planners, architects and designers; children in the suburbs; the elderly in the suburbs; family life and change; health, education & work; privacy and public space in the suburbs; community / civic engagement; retrofitting; gentrification; poverty and deprivation; local, regional and national policy; changing economies; transport; globalization / borders; migration and diasporas; suburban land use; population density and change; green spaces; brownfield sites; sustainability; the suburbs of the future.

Please submit a 200 word proposal for your 20-minute paper (or a 200 word synopsis of your three / four-person panel) by 1 November 2013 to Jill Sullivan, Network Research Facilitator at

Once again, we have a limited number of travel bursaries (£100 each) available to postgraduate students who would like to participate. If you would like to apply for one of these bursaries, please include an application with your proposal, outlining the reasons why you would like to attend and how you feel your work fits with the theme of the conference.

The Right to the City Movement and the Turkish Summer. By Jay Cassano

Jun 01 2013

As I write this, Istanbul is under siege. The might of Istanbul’s entire police force—the largest city police force in Europe—is violently cracking down on peaceful occupiers in Gezi Park. The protest, which began on 27 May, is ostensibly over a planned shopping center to be built over a park in Istanbul’s central Taksim Square. Nevertheless, massive popular movements like this do not emerge out of nowhere. Typically, they are the result of the tireless groundwork of …
