2nd Nordic Urban Workshop at Stockholm University 25th-26th October 2011

Welcome to the second Nordic Urban workshop, a two-day meeting directed towards PhD students and young researchers studying urban dynamics from a broad range of disciplines.
The workshop features a key lecture and a career strategy discussion, along with parallel sessions to discuss each other´s work. This will provide you with good opportunities to discuss ideas in an informal atmosphere while presenting your work in an international setting and expanding your network.

Keynote Lecture: Cities and Sexualities, by Phil Hubbard

Call for sessions and presentations are open. We suggest the following sessions but also welcome other themes:
– Scale and the city
– The importance of fieldwork in your research
– The challenge of comparison in urban studies
– Environmental and social sustainability
– When the theory goes into praxis, and back…

The workshop is free of charge. Lunch and “Fika” will be provided. However, overhead costs (travel, accommodation, dinner, etc.) are at your own expenses. We also propose some social activity in Stockholm before the dinner, and we hope you can join!

Please to fill in the application form and to send it by e-mail to nuw.stockholm.2011@gmail.com before the 15th of September.
