Event Description

Philosophy began in the city, and the city is a recurrent topic in the history of philosophy. The urban promises to become an important challenge for humanity (and life in general) in the 21st century. We are calling for papers that address the history, present and future of the city from a variety of philosophical perspectives.
Particular interests include the following topics:
 Sustainability and globalization
 Built and natural environments
 Questions of culture and subculture
 Associationism and communitarianism
 Violence and inequality
 The economy, labor and work
 Gender and place
 Participatory planning and justice
 Infrastructure, energy and ethics
 Urban food issues
 Democracy and public space
 Environmental change
 Race and Immigration
This list is only suggestive; the range of topics is open. Interdisciplinary approaches are welcome. Send extended abstracts of 300-500 words or full papers of 3000 words to Shane Epting, by August 16, 2013. Address inquires to Dr. Michael Menser,
