[Commlist] CFP Urban Studies International Conference in Surabaya, Indonesia

Wed Apr 03 05:44:17 GMT 2019

*Call for Paper*


This year’s theme is an expansion from the past 4th ICUS 2017 on /Border and Mobility/ to accommodate the complexity in line with the current state of perspectives and praxis by adding aspects of transportation and space. In the context of Southeast Asia, the roles and future of state borders, with their pertinent issues on territoriality, have gradually become important themes in relation to borders and spatiality. The power of globalization gives birth to a new world mostly characterized by ‘flows’ and ‘networks’ leading to a thesis for a ‘borderless’ world. In this way, within the increasing interactions and networks, the roles of the state as a crucial organizer of territorial spaces, meaning, as well as the national interests are appealing as a field of inquiries.

The sub themes include the following topics:

 1. Borders in global research
 2. Borders in locality
 3. Borders of identity movements
 4. Borders in body, well-being and of being human
 5. Borders in sexual politics and gender identity struggles
 6. Borders in policymaking
 7. Borders in arts
 8. Borders in media and communications technology
 9. Borders in space and place
10. Borders in maritime security and issues
11. Borders in language, culture and multilingualism
12. Borders in history or (his/her)story
13. Borders in literature and culture
14. Borders in education
15. Transport and transportation
16. Transport and connectivity
17. Transport and identity
