AESOP Young Academics Network is proud to announce its 8th annual Conference, Cities that Talk. The conference theme responds to the contemporary phenomena of urban resistances that have significantly challenged traditional practices of urban planning worldwide. Urban resistances range from everyday life insurgencies, through protests and riots, to urban social movements. These resistances request planning systems to stop the invention and authorization of particular traditions, histories, meanings, identities, landscapes, and lifestyles in their cities. Instead, planning systems ought to situate urban policies and strategies in the local contexts of development with particular attention to the recognition of the diverse cultural and social identities in a city based on social and environmental justice, wellbeing and quality of life, and coexistence and equal representation. . 

This year the conference will be hosted by the Urban Heritage Cluster of Critical Heritage Studies at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, 10-13 March 2014. Young scholars - PhDs, Postdoctors and early career researchers - are invited to submit their contributions to Cities that Talk.

Warmly welcome to submit abstract and register!
