Transnational Cities Conference

Event

When: Mar 28, 2014 - 09:00am - Mar 29, 2014 - 04:00pm

Where: Hodgin Hall, George Pearl Hall

The Department of History, UNM School of Architecture & Planning, the Center for the Southwest, and the Office of the Provost are hosting the “Transnational Cities: Past into Present” conference on Friday and Saturday, March 28 and 29th.   Conference events include working group panel presentations and discussions during the day on Friday and Saturday(abstracts) and Friday evening's PechaKucha where several conference participants will be presenting 20 slides x 20 seconds versions of their ongoing research into transnational urbanism.

The purpose of this event is to bring together scholars from North America who are well situated to think through the practice and direction of transnational urban history and planning at an early point in their development. Participants will exchange ideas about methodology and theory; and in light of the way that other fields have been transformed by the transnational turn, will consider how best to frame future contributions. We will scrutinize these terms as well, debating transnational, international, global, comparative, and world approaches.
