The CRESC annual conference 2011 takes the rubric of 'framing' to scrutinise the processes by which the city has been conceptualised, conceived , ordered and depicted - and how these processes have been disrupted and contested - in regard to the meta-themes of: the material, ecologies and environments, publics & politics, economies, the visual, and affect.
CRESC 2013 Annual Conference: In/vulnerabilities and Social Change: Precarious Lives and Experimental KnowledgeWed, Sep 4th 2013 - Fri, Sep 6th 2013
In a world of radical political, economic and ecological uncertainty, lives and life chances are increasingly precarious for many. It is becoming ever more urgent to explore the changing vulnerabilities of the majority. At the same time, understanding the in/vulnerabilities of elites and their sometimes inadequate forms of expertise and knowledge is also crucial. These are the two central themes of the CRESC 2013 Conference, which is co-sponsored by the Journal for Cultural Economy.
