>CONFERENCE AIMS
>
>Contemporary processes of social, economic, and political change are
>dramatically transforming how space and time are produced both as
>material entities and as organizing categories. Such changes are
>having significant effects on the ways in which people live their
>lives, constitute their identities, and understand their places in the
>world. As a result, long-standing notions of time and space are being
>challenged, reworked, and reconstituted.
>
>This mini-conference seeks to bring together scholars from around the
>globe to address these and related issues. The conference is planned
>as a forum for a focused and informed discussion of the central issues
>concerning changing theorizations of time and space. Papers that
>develop both theoretical and empirical points are preferred. Issues
>which might be discussed at the conference include, but are not limited
>to:
>
> ? Labor and new geographies of social regulation
>
> ? Analytical and contextual approaches to space and time
>
> ? Sex, sexuality and space
>
> ? Environmental (dis)function
>
> ? The changing political economy of space and time
>
> ? Place and the politics of identity
>
> ? Globalization and localization
