Announcing Urban ARC 2017: The City in Transition

January 18, 2017 @ 8:00 am - January 20, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

The Indian Institute for Human Settlements (IIHS) presents the first iteration of its annual research conference – Urban ARC 2017: The City in Transition. Building on IIHS’ goals of fostering research and innovation around challenges and opportunities of India’s urban transition, Urban ARC 2017 will be organised around themes of transition, transformation and change. It will focus on the urban context in the Global South with an emphasis on Indian and South Asian urbanisation.

Urban ARC 2017 will host researchers from across the world working on various aspects and facets of transition in urban spaces, geographies, built forms, economies, ecologies, societies, politics, and cultures. It will have a strong interdisciplinary focus, encouraging researchers to engage with multiple perspectives and viewpoints using the theme ‘transitions’ as a lens to critically examine urbanisation and related questions.

The conference will be organised around eight panels that will engage in research based conversations on different facets of the Urban. The call for abstracts is open till 30 November 2016. Details are available at http://iihs.co.in/urbanarc/
