We are pleased to announce that the deadline of abstract submission has been extended up to February 10. We hope that you enjoy the program of the conference including keynote lectures by Suzi Hall, Jesús Leal and Martina Löw, thematic sessions and informal activities in Madrid.

Inequalities and uncertainty can be discussed in the relation to the following topics:

  1.    Visibility and invisibility of urban inequalities and uncertainty
  2.    Individual and collective strategies of coping with contemporary urban challenges at the neighbourhood level
  3.    Class, gender, age and ethnicity as factors of inequalities and uncertainty
  4.    Urban policies and institutional effectiveness in times of crisis
  5.    Social responses to crisis – from everyday life practices to contemporary urban social movements
  6.    Spatiality and the new geographies of inequalities and uncertainty
  7.    (Im)mobility of urban inequalities – urban inequalities of (im)mobility
  8.    Urban sustainability and global environmental crisis
  9.    Innovative methodological contributions of urban sociology for studies on social inequalities and uncertainty

In this conference we also wish to celebrate and bring into the discussion the works of two social scientists who greatly contributed to Urban Sociology and Urban Studies in general: Lefebvre and Simmel. In that sense, we propose two additional topics:

  1.   Reading Henri Lefebvre’s “The Right to the City”, 50 years later.
  2.   Georg Simmel (1858-1918): reflecting on his multiple contributions for Urban Sociology

We welcome proposals exploring theoretical, methodological, and empirical issues.
