CFP:The Ins and Outs of Socialism

On August 25-27, 2017 the Center for Urban History will host a conference "The Ins and Outs of Socialism: Visions and Experiences of Urban Change in the Second World."

This conference aims at bringing together scholars who study different time periods and cities where socialist projects were either launched or collapsed in the 20th century, as well as those that are still in place. The theme of transition into and out of socialism and the (un-)making of socialist cities serves as entry points into broader discussions about the specificity of urban change in the Second World and its relationship to similar currents in the global North and South. The conference examines the content of the socialist city – its "ins and outs" – from power grids and housing stocks to museums and places of worship at these points of transition. Looking at the series of junctures that produced new forms of urbanity can help create a fresh narrative of socialist urban experiences and visions at the crucial moments of their realizations and reconceptualizations as both the future and the past of the socialist project

The conference selection committee will announce its selection of papers for the conference by February 15, 2017
