The International Graduate Program at the Technische Universität Berlin's Center for Metropolitan Studies' will host its third annual conference, "“Metropolitan Temporalities” takes place from Nov. 20-22, 2014:
What role does time play in the characterization of the metropolis and the global processes that sustain metropolitan life? Over the past three decades, both urban studies and globalization studies have predominately focused on spatial concerns, often neglecting the important temporal dimensions of global urban development. Our third annual conference therefore seeks to systematically examine the diverse temporal aspects of global exchange and metropolitan development.
