CFP - Imagined Civities: cities and alternatives in the 19th century - Cambridge, June 8 2011

Imagined Civities: cities and alternatives in the 19th century

A one day conference organised by The Guild: Interdisciplinary 19th Century Forum.

English Faculty, University of Cambridge, June 8th 2011.

Keynote speaker – Prof. Peter Mandler (Faculty of History, Cambridge).

Abstracts (200 words) are invited for 20 minute papers on any aspects of cultural and intellectual responses to urbanisation in the 19th century.

How did artists, scientists, philosophers and others respond to the opportunities and challenges created by cities in the 19th century? How did they represent those cities already in existence, and how did they imagine the future in light of that experience? Topics might include urban utopias and dystopias, attitudes to urban conservation and town-planning, representations of post-urban societies, re-configured attitudes to urban experience in other historical epochs, and 19th century understandings of the political implications of life in the city.

Please email abstracts and titles

to Aurélie Petiot (petiot.aurelie@gmail.com), Austen Saunders (ags43@cam.ac.uk) and Ranald Lawrence (rarl2@cam.ac.uk)

by December 15.
