We especially invite scholars to reflect on the role of the city in the current pandemic and how our relationships to cities may change in a Post-COVID situation. This may include but is certainly not limited to topics such as urban resilience, architecture and public health, and sustainable development in a time of crisis and of of course non-Covid related research. Topics in previous conferences have included:

  • Architecture, urban planning and public health
  • Sustainable development in a time of crisis
  • Issues in Housing, Transportation, Smart Cities, Infrastructure, Energy, Water and Food
  • Urban Affairs & Social Identities: Race, Class, Gender, Sexuality and Citizenship
  • Urban Aesthetics
