We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the upcoming “Spatiality and Temporality” International Conference. The conference is addressed to academics, researchers and professionals with a particular interest related to the conference topic. We invite proposals from various disciplines including philosophy, history, sociology, anthropology, culture studies, literature and architecture.

The conference will explore spatiality and temporality as fundamental categories of human experience and cognition and it will discuss various interpretations of these categories and complex relations between them. The conference will also examine conceptions and perceptions of time and space in relation to memory, historical and social change, technological innovations, interactivity and cultural differentiation.

Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:

  • time and space boundaries
  • monuments and historical sites
  • globalization and urban spaces
  • places made by nature
  • ruins and forgotten places
  • heterotopias and heterochronies
  • toponymy and topoanalysis
  • cartography and mapmaking

Proposals up to 250 words and a brief biographical note should be sent by 30 April 2017 to: spatiality.temporality@irf-network.org. Download Paper proposal form.
