CfA: Conference "The Ins and Outs of Socialism: Visions and Experiences of Urban Change in the Second World" (Deadline January 15, 2017)

This conference aims at bringing together scholars who study different time periods and cities where socialist projects were either launched or collapsed in the 20th century, as well as those that are still in place. The theme of transition into and out of socialism and the (un-)making of socialist cities serves as entry points into broader discussions about the specificity of urban change in the Second World and its relationship to similar currents in the global North and South.
