CFP: Urban Culture (6/25/06; MAPACA, 10/27-10/29/06)

The focus of this year’s Urban Culture area is the city of the future. 
We seek presenters who explore how political unrest, new technologies, 
travel, preservation initiatives, street performances, and 
architectural experiments affect how we imagine and plan the cities of 
tomorrow. Historical or ethnographic studies of cities, poetic 
accounts of personal geographies through cities, and explorations of 
highly orchestrated or surprisingly improvised events in designated 
areas in the city are encouraged. If interested in participating in a 
workshop on “writing the urban,” in addition to presenting a paper, 
please, indicate so. Please, send your 1-page paper abstracts and 1-
paragraph recent bios as virus-free, Word attachments to Blagovesta 
Momchedjikova, bmm202 at nyu.edu, by June 25th, 2006. This year, the Mid-
Atlantic Popular Culture/American Culture Association meets in 
Baltimore, MD, October 27-29th, 2006. For more information, check:
