Background and aim

The 3rd International Workshop on Post-communist Urban Geographies. Actors Shaping Urban Change carries on the tradition established by two earlier workshops held in Lund (2005) and Stockholm-Tallinn (2007) with the aim (1) to draw together scholars interested in post-communist cities in order to discuss leading edge urban research in the region, and (2) to experience post-socialist urban change first hand through conference excursions. The previous workshops have been diverse both with regard to the topics presented and the geography of participants, drawing together about 50 young and established scholars in the field. The outcomes of past workshops have included the establishment of the Cities After Transition (CAT) network JISC-mailing list (with over 90 members across the globe), the CAT website, and special issues of leading international journals in the field (Geografiska Annaler. Series B. Human Geography 2007, 89(2), and Urban Studies, forthcoming).


Call for papers

We call for papers in any field dealing with post-communist urban change, either empirical or theoretical in content. Both quantitative and qualitative research from population, political, cultural, economic geographic and other perspectives on such cities are warmly welcome. In addition to this open call for papers, the subtitle of the workshop focuses on the role of various local and/or global actors — the state, people/households, enterprises, public/third sector — in shaping post-communist urban areas. For example, the organizers encourage submission of papers on the topic of people in the city, focusing on issues such as everyday lives and socio-cultural groups in the city-space, patterns and causes of segregation and desegregation, and the role of mobility (daily mobility, residential change, internal and international in- and out-migration) in shaping the post-communist urban change.


Call for session organizers

We also encourage the organization of thematic sessions, especially on the role of other global and local urban actors in shaping post-communist cities. To be eligible for organizing a session, a short abstract should be submitted to the organizers of the workshop.


Excursion

The field trip will visit Northeast Estonia or Ida-Virumaa, the main area of rapid Soviet-era industrialization and urbanization. We will visit cities such as Narva (a border town with Russia), Kohtla-Järve (a centre of oil-shale production) and Sillamäe (previously a closed city) during the excursion.


Paper submission

We encourage the submission of full papers by all participants since we would like to continue the tradition to publish the best contributions in the form of a special issue of a peer reviewed international journal.
