Call for Papers - Urban ARC 2019 'City and the Region'

21st Sep 2018


Urban ARC 2019 – City and the Region

The third edition of Urban ARC, the Annual Research Conference of the Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) will be held from 10 – 12 January 2019, at the IIHS Bengaluru City Campus. The theme for the 2019 edition is ‘City and the Region’.

Scholarship on the relationship between cities and their surrounding regions has a long history, dating back at least to MacKinner’s conceptualisation of London as a city-region in 1902. Since then, much research has been dedicated to understanding the linkages which exist between the two. Over time, these conceptualisations have been challenged, reimagined, and redrawn, particularly as studies of cities have extended to the Global South.

Urban ARC 2019 seeks to examine and unpack themes around the city and region by examining a wide-range of intersections – sectoral, disciplinary, methodological and geographic. It offers a space for conversations on theoretical and methodological research interventions across disciplinary silos.

Scholars, researchers, and practitioners who work on these themes are invited to submit paper proposals studying the relationships and linkages between the city and region. The call for papers is now open and the deadline for submission is 17 October 2018. Details on the conference and submission process are available here.
