Call for Papers: On the Spatial Epistemology of Politics, or How We Know Politics Through Space: Essays for Design Studies'

Deadline: April 8, 2013

We're currently soliciting papers for 'On the Spatial Epistemology of
Politics'. The deadline for submission is April 08, 2013 via the website
www.spaceandpolitics.org
'On the Spatial Epistemology of Politics, or How We Know Politics Through
Space: Essays for Design Studies' is a forthcoming edited book that
explores how spaces are political and how politics is spatial. Co-edited
by Harvard PhD candidates Delia Wendel and Fallon Samuels Aidoo, the book
is funded in part by the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the
Fine Arts.

What knowledge of politics is produced through space? How have the
politics of contention and consensus affected our built environment, and
vice versa? Through spaces of protest, occupation, segregation, neglect,
and spaces of deliberation, negotiation, reconciliation, and
commemoration, we have become familiar with the production of space as a
mode of political consciousness, representation and engagement. Our global
history is replete with examples of these political spaces arising from
explicit designs for political purposes or transformations through
politicization ex post facto. This call for papers solicits original
research to explore the politics of contention and consensus in spatial
forms and practices.

We are soliciting papers from a wide range of disciplinary and
geographical concentrations to explore how spatial practices and forms
produce knowledge of political conflict and consensus. The full Call for

Papers and additional information on the book can be found at
