3. International Conference

28. October 12:30 – 30. October 16:00 Uhr

Spatial Refiguration: Dynamics, Challenges, and Conflicts
3. International Conference of the Collaborative Research Centre “Re-Figuration of Spaces”, October 28-30, 2021

Since 2018, the collaborative research centre CRC 1265 “Re-Figuration of Spaces” has brought together more than 60 researchers from the disciplines of sociology, architecture, urban planning, geography, media and communication studies. Following the central hypothesis of the CRC that the radical changes in socio-spatial orders which have emerged since the late 1960s require a new concept and theories beyond globalisation, the forthcoming international conference will invite renowned international scholars and a wide-ranging academic audience to discuss preliminary research outcomes. How can the concept of the refiguration of spaces help make conflictual transformation processes more tangible and enable a better understanding of the underlying dynamics which shape new conflicts and challenges? How do these conflicts manifest themselves in spatial knowledge, in new forms of digital communication and decision making, or in knowledge circuits, mobilities and flows across globally connected societies. Confirmed keynote speakers include Ulrich Brand, Robin Celikates, Keller Easterling, Serene Khader, Walter Mignolo and Raquel Rolnik.

Registration until 7. October.
