The third annual conference, “Metropolitan Temporalities” takes place from Nov. 20-22, 2014 in Berlin, and a call for papers is now open.
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.
The conference is organized into four key clusters:
I. Metropolitan Pasts and Futures
II. Politics of Time
III. Metropolitan Rhythms
IV. Economies of Time
