Call for Papers | (Re)Visioning the Urban Imagination: The Art and Politics of Redevelopment
Richmond's Kensington Campus, London, UK

Scholarship / Financial aid: free conference

Date: 14th November 2014

Deadline: August 22, 2014

Open to: emerging and established scholars, urban planners, community representatives, artists and activists

Announcement follows

One-Day Conference to be held at Richmond's Kensington Campus on 14th November 2014

This conference seeks to address the representations of urban redevelopment by investigating the interplay of aesthetics and politics as it concerns competing imaginations of the transforming city. It is organised around a few questions:
• How do visions of redevelopment affect the socio-spatial restructuring of the urban landscape?
• How do the ways we represent and imagine the city affect the politics of inclusion and exclusion in urban neighbourhoods?
• Can the spaces of the urban, including walls, pavements, gardens, and trees, inspire a sense of territoriality, active citizenship or a “right to the city”?
• What is visual legacy of mega events, like the Olympics and the World Cup, and what form/s does it take?
• What is the nature of and ethical dimension/s of urban visual research?

In seeking to create an interdisciplinary conversation on these questions, we welcome papers from emerging and established scholars, urban planners, community representatives, artists and activists on the following themes and topics:

• The representation of developing and developed urban space in film, television and the creative arts
• The role of the visual in the privatization of public space and gentrification
• The politics of public art and role of artists in regeneration
• Issues of cultural authenticity and the reproduction/representation of urban space in visual culture
• Strategic spatial interventions – graffiti, public art, performance art, Flashmobs, walking tours, demonstrations
• Case studies concerning visual legacy in the management of sustainable and inclusive urban futures
• Case studies of representations of urban based protests
• Case studies of the visual material of urban social movements
• Surveillance, CCTV, and policing sites in the city
• New Media heritage sites (such as Historypin) and their role in cultural sustainability of urban space
• The use of digital “space” by small-scale community-driven initiatives (blogs)
• Visual research methods in urban contexts and experimental visual research methods such as moving image, photo elicitation, and participative blogs in urban redevelopment processes

Please send abstracts of up to 300 words for a 20-minute talk to Nicola Mann and Susan Pell at by 20th August 2014. The organizers will announce all decisions about papers by Monday 15th September 2014.

For further information please contact the organizers at the above email addresses. The conference is free and open to the public.
