Quoting Philip Lawton <[log in to unmask]>:

> Dear Ian,
>
> I am writing to enquire about your session 'Delivering and Sustaining the
> Urban
> Renaissance' at the Conference of the Association of American Geographers
> this
> April.
>
> My research involves an examination of a total of 9 civic spaces in three
> European Cities; London, Amsterdam and Dublin. In each city I have selected
> three spaces, each located in different areas so as to get a broader
> understanding of the various processes taking place depending on the social,
> economic and cultural factors.
>
> For example, my research in London involved and examination of Trafalgar
> Square,
> as a central iconic space of national importance, Paternoster Square as a
> space
> which is central to The City of London business district and Peckham Square
> as
> an area which is central to a 'local' neighborhood of London. Through
> on-street
> observation and interviews along with interviews with different actors in the
> planning of each space - urban planners, architects, management teams, etc -
> it
> has been possible to gain an insight in to the nature of public space in
> London
> in the early 21st Century. I am presently repeating a similar process in
> Dublin
> and Amsterdam, so as to gain an understanding of themes emerging on a
> European
> scale.
>
> I am planning on submitting an abstract to you by Friday the 6th, but I was
> just
> wondering if I should register with the AAG first. Any information would be
> greatly appreciated.

> Best Wishes,

> Quoting "Ian R. Cook" <[log in to unmask]>:
>
> > Building on the e-conference series planned in November 2006, the
> > emerging “Researching Contemporary Cities” network are now planning two
> > follow-up sessions at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of
> > Geographers in San Francisco April 17-21 2007. The call for papers is now

> > SESSION 1: DELIVERING AND SUSTAINING THE URBAN RENAISSANCE: Graduate
> > research on the reconstitution of local governance, built environments and
> > public spaces
> >
> > Organisers: Ian R. Cook and David Christoffer Lier, University of
> > Manchester
> >
> > Delivering and/or sustaining an urban renaissance seem to the core
> > objectives for local governments across towns and cities throughout
> > Western and Eastern Europe, North America and beyond. In order to do this,
> > local government services, public spaces and built environments of towns
> > and cities are been reconstituted and refunctionalised. In some senses,
> > towns and cities and their elites are following similar strategies and
> > undergoing similar processes. Governmental services are becoming
> > entrepreneurial, efficiency-driven and business-led; public spaces are
> > been cleansed, secured and privatised; and the built environment is
> > increasingly catering for gentrified upper-middle class residency and
> > consumption practices. Indeed, these services, spaces and buildings are
> > often increasingly geared towards actual and potential visitors, investors
> > and upper-middle class citizens and consumers. Seducing these groups and
> > unlocking their finances, it is argued by policymakers, will facilitate
> > the beginning or continuation of urban renaissance. This session,
> > sponsored by the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN), will examine the
> > particular strategies utilised to (hopefully) deliver and sustain an urban
> > renaissance in various towns and cities throughout the world. Papers
> > within this session can explore any one (or more) of the following
> > empirical and theoretical issues:
> >
> > - What is meant by an ‘urban renaissance’?
> > - Who governs, delivers and finances the urban renaissance?
> > - What regeneration and social control policies and tactics are used?
> > - How and why has local governance, public spaces and built environments
> > been reconstituted and refunctionalised?
> > - What opposition, contestation, negotiation and contradictions are
> > bounded up in the urban renaissance?
> > - How successful has the urban renaissance been? Who has benefited and who
> > has not?
> > - How adequate are existing academic theorisations of these
> > transformations?
> >
> > ABSTRACT SUBMISSION:
> > If you are interested in presenting at this session please send an
> > abstract of 250 words or less to Ian R. Cook
> > ([log in to unmask]) no later than October 6th 2006.
