University of California, Los Angeles
Los Angeles, USA
4-5 December 2010

This conference aims to critically engage contemporary spatial, social,
ideological, and political transformations in a transitional world. In a
process-oriented world of movement, the global north and global south now
simultaneously converge and diverge in a dialectic that shapes and
transforms cities, suburbs , and rural areas. This conference addresses the
nature and mapping of these forces and the dynamics that propel these
changes. The conference also examines and defines the myriad of different
spaces that make up our contemporary world, including urban, edgeurban,
de-urban, micro-urban, greenfield, and off-the-grid.

In addition to plenary presentations, the Spaces and Flows Conference
includes parallel presentations by practitioners, teachers, and researchers.
We invite you to respond to the conference Call-for-Papers. Presenters may
submit their written papers for publication in the peer reviewed ‘Spaces and
Flows: An International Journal on Urban and Extraurban Studies’. If you are
unable to attend the conference in person virtual registrations are also
available which allow you to submit a paper for referring and possible
publication. You also have the ability to upload your presentation to the
Space and Flows YouTube channel.

The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short
abstract) is 13 May 2010
. Future deadlines will be announced on the
conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks
of submission. Full details of the conference, including an online proposal
submission form, may be found at the conference website: .
