A Call for Papers for the upcoming

UMM conference »Mapping “Post-Conflict” Cities«

Department of Loiret. City of Meung-sur-Loire. Reconstruction and development plan (1942). 1:5000, National Library of France

at Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space (IRS) and online, 19.–21. October 2022

Building on the knowledge gathered from academic literature as well as from the first UrbanMetaMapping conference “Cartographies of Catastrophes” in Bamberg (2021) this conference will examine mapping of “post-conflict” cities from the 19th century until the present day in different geographic settings. Firstly, we want to focus particularly on the question of continuities and ruptures relating to urban planning in those cases when end of conflict coincided with a change of socio-political regime. Secondly, we want to move away from the iconic cities, capitals in particular, and focus instead on less known case studies. We are therefore particularly interested in mapping of “peripheral” cities and their experience of “post-conflict” periods.

The deadline for the Call for Papers is 15. April 2022.
