Re-industrialisation and progressive urbanism
One day conference, 13th of June 2013
School of Architecture, Design and Environment, Plymouth University

Call for Abstracts

Could urban re-industrialisation be seen as a method of increasing
business effectiveness in the context of a politically stimulated
'green economy'? Could it be seen as a nostalgic mutation of a
creative-class concept, focused on 3D printing, 'boutique
manufacturing' and crafts? These two notions place urban
re-industrialisation within the context of the current neoliberal
economic regime and urban development based on property and land
speculation. The key question for this conference is could urban
re-industrialisation be imagined as a progressive socio-political and
economical project, aiming to create an inclusive and democratic
society based on cooperation and symbiosis that goes way beyond the
current model of a neoliberal city?

We invite abstracts (max. 300 words) for papers from researchers and
practitioners from a broad range of disciplines, including, but not
limited to architecture, urban design, planning, economics, sociology,
anthropology, geography, and environmental science. We welcome
submissions based on empirical research as well as theoretical and
visionary investigations.

Abstracts will be selected for further development as papers to be
presented at the conference. Papers shall be 2000 words maximum.
Further submission requirements will be distributed to the authors of
selected abstracts. Abstracts should arrive no later than Monday 1
April 2013. Please send them in .doc or .pdf format to:
