RC21 - Conference 2020 Antwerp

Welcome to Antwerp!

The 2020 annual conference of the International Sociological Association Research Committee 21 on Urban and Regional Development will take place in Antwerp from 6 to 8 July 2020.

The general theme of the conference is ‘Sensing and Shaping the City’, focusing on how citizens experience the fragmentary, unequal and contradictory realities of global urbanity. You can read the conference call here

The official conference programme consists of plenaries and paper sessions, but will be accompanied by a social programme, including a welcome reception, a conference dinner and city tours.

The “Call for Sessions” has now closed. The selected calls for papers can be read here.   

The “Call for Papers” is open until the 15th March 2020. Notifications of abstract approvals will be sent out from the 15th of April onwards. Early bird registration will start shortly before that.

All queries about the conference can be sent to RC21-2020.conference@uantwerpen.be

We hope to see you in Antwerp!
