Association for Urban Creativity Conference – 31st May & 1st June 2013

New directions for research on Cities, Societies and Cultures

The Association for Urban Creativity, in association with the Urban Research Plaza, Osaka City University and Department of Culture, Media and Creative Industries (CMCI), King’s College London, announce the second annual conference.

The theme is New directions for research on Cities, Societies and Cultures. The objective of this conference is to look to new and emerging agendas in work on cities, culture and creativity. We welcome work that focuses on any part of the world; we especially welcome work that asks critical questions of normative approaches, and work that deals with cities beyond North American/European. We invite papers from a wide disciplinary field; multiple foci on our object of interest is welcomed.

Our aim is to be as inclusive as possible and we are keen to give a platform for younger researchers as well as more established ones. We will have a competitive bursary for a early career research (to cover travel and accommodation costs). Overall the conference will be free registration, due to the generous support of the Osaka City University and King’s College London.

The conference will take place at King’s College London, on the Strand Campus, for more information and to register click here.
