 Global Cities - an interdisciplinary conference (Liverpool Hope University,
UK; 29th-30th June 2006)

 This conference is intended to encourage interdisciplinary exchange on the
representation, cultures, histories, experience, planning, and articulation
of global cities. By interrogating the vocabularies that have arisen in
several disciplines which might include in addition to the term 'global
city', 'global village', 'megacities', 'cosmopolis', imperial metropolis',
'world cities', 'sprawl', 'postmetropolis', etc., the conference will bring
together debates over images, narratives, economics, planning and, above
all, experience, of the 'global' city. Papers are sought from any relevant
discipline in the humanities, social sciences, architecture, urban planning,
and beyond.

We will be actively pursuing various publishing outputs related to the
Abstracts of 200 words for 20-minute papers by 28th February 2006. Further
information from Dr Lawrence Phillips, phillil at hope.ac.uk.
