2013 Symposium at Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York:
Out of Control Suburbs? Comparing Representations of Order, Disorder and Sprawl
27-28 June 2013, Hofstra University, Hempstead, New York
Keynote Speaker: Professor Dolores Hayden, Yale University
Following the success of our 2011 Inaugural Symposium, our second meeting seeks to discuss the nature and representation of suburbs, suburban life and sprawl whether local, regional or global. Where are the margins of suburbia and do they represent order, disorder or nostalgia? How is sprawl defined – as organic social process or negative cultural impact? And how is it experienced by diverse communities and individuals? What are the aesthetics of order and sprawl? How do representations of suburban sprawl and disorder converge or diverge between the Global South and North – and within the Global North?
REGISTRATION CLOSED ON 12 APRIL . However, we are still accepting late registrations from non-presenting delegates.
