From Dichotomies to Dialogues

Join this year’s conference of the International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU):

25 – 27 November, Delft, The Netherlands (online or hybrid)

The 14th edition of the IFoU conference with the title ” From Dichotomies to Dialogues–connecting discourses for a sustainable urbanism“ is a stepping stone towards resilient urbanism. The existing dichotomies of discourses need to be bridged. We need to take the opportunity to transcend and connect different discourses in urbanism, so as to invent better ways of achieving resilience and sustainability.

As many perspectives exist in the field of urbanism, reflected in studies and practices by scholars, practitioners, policy makers, as well as the daily experiences of people, conflicts in interests and value systems also persist, which call for dialogues between dichotomies of discourses. Nowadays it might not be difficult to have a common definition of urbanism, which is concerned with understanding the spatial organization and dynamics of the built environment and with inventing new ways to maintain spatial quality and equality. However, the world is not yet on the same page about the meaning of resilient and sustainable urbanism, and the ways to approach it. The existing dichotomies of discourses need to be bridged as the challenges cities and regions face now and in the future are enormous, which are affected and determined by unexpected extreme events like the pandemic, economic crisis and climate change.

The 14th IFoU conference would like to invite you to contribute to the following tracks of dialogues via our call for papers.
