Call for papers – “Urban-Rural Relationships: North-South Perspectives” colloquium

Appel à communication

Summaries must be sent before: Monday, November 17, 2014

This international colloquium, organized by the LabEx DynamiTe, will take place in Paris from June 9th to June 11th, 2015.

The objective is to go beyond the highly focused approaches in identifying the types of contact and relations between city (ies) and countryside (s) and to question the existence of macro-regional specificities: is the distinction between North and South still relevant? In different urban contexts, what processes are causing differentiation between metropolii and second-level cities? Do the relationships maintained with countrysides allow us to distinguish different categories of cities? Do they highlight different time scales, in the face of the globalization process?
