ISLAND CITIES AND URBAN ARCHIPELAGOS

21-25 October, 2014, Copenhagen, Denmark

www.islanddynamics.org/islandcities.html

This conference will consider cities located on islands, past and present — both cities based on small islands or archipelagos (New York, Singapore, Hong Kong, Venice, Amsterdam, etc.) and major population centres of larger islands or archipelagos (Reykjavik, Taipei, Palermo, Havana, Honolulu, etc.). The conference will explore how island status influences urban development, common attributes of island cities worldwide, and the opportunities that islandness presents for developing urban cultures and economies. It will also consider how and why different island cities have developed in different ways.

Keynote Speakers: Saskia Sassen, Godfrey Baldacchino, Jon Pierre, Jonathan Pugh, Brenda S.A. Yeoh, and Christian Wichmann Matthiessen

Deadline for Abstracts: 30 April 2014

Please e-mail Adam Grydehøj at agrydehoj@islanddynamics.org for more information.
