FSSK, CUS and CSM invite you to a conference day:

Urban Uprisings in Contemporary Europe
Paris 2005, Athens 2008, London 2011 - What's next?

When: Wednesday 15th of February 2012. 9.50am -16.30 pm

Where
: Linnésalen, Mediehuset, Seminariegatan 1B, Campus Linné

A Spectre is stalking Europe - the spectre of suburban youth revolts. Europe is a continent marked by growing inequality, racism and social tensions. In recent years we have seen battle like pictures on TV from Paris, Athens, Lyon, Rotterdam, Copenhagen and most recently in London and other British cities. During the last two years different areas in the metropolitan districts in Sweden has also become a part of this picture. How should we understand this development, how do we explain these uprisings? Are there general patterns that could be seen in all cities?

The unit for Contemporary Cultural Studies (Forum för Studier av Samtidskultur - FSSK), the Centre for Urban Studies (Centrum för Urbana Studier) and Gothenburg CSM (Forum for Civil Society and Social Movement Research), all at Gothenburg University, arrange a one day conference on these issues and we welcome you to this first conference day in a series on urban movements and urban change.

The conference is free (and includes coffee and bun) but has a limited number of seats. We therefore require that you send us an email if you like to participate before the 8th of February to ensure your seat.
Email to: catharina.thorn@kultur.gu.se, ove.sernhede@gu.se, hakan.thorn@sociology.gu.se

Invited speakers are:
Mustafa Dikec (Paris): Mustafa is a cultural geographer at The Royal Hollway University of London and the author of the most interesting analysis of the French uprising in 2005: His book Badlands of the Republic. Space politics and urban policy is already a classic piece of work.
