CFP: "The Globalization of Place: A Contest between Transnational Anonymity
and Presence" Sponsored by the Pace Institute for Environmental & Regional
Deadline: May 16, 2005

 For the PIERS fourth annual conference on environmental and regional issues
we are requesting papers and presentations that contextualize place within
the global process, particularly its emergence in cities, and how the old
and new custodians of places compete for political, economic, religious and
social recognition in a highly diverse and often hostile environment.

We welcome topics in the "new geography of centrality"-transnational
political arrangements and economic entitlements; the revival of
nationalisms; clash over the distinction between public and private
places-cultural genealogies of the public/private distinction; immigration
and reterritorialization as necessary consequences of globalization; the
connections between place, sustainable development and globalization; US
global centers (Los Angeles, New York.) as 'third-world' cities; and the
privatization of migration are only a few of many possibilities.

Submissions from diverse disciplinary perspectives are encouraged and will
be given preference. Disciplines include but are not limited to
anthropology, architecture, conservation biology, ecology, economics,
geography, history, language and cultural studies, legal theory, literature,
philosophy, psychology, sociology, theology, and urban studies-planning,
The conference has been rescheduled for Friday June 17th at the Pace
University New York City Campus, 1 Pace Plaza from 10:30 - 5:30PM (Reception
6 - 9PM)
