"The Urban Affairs Association (UAA) invites proposal submissions for the UAA 2022 Conference, “Shaping the Future of Urban Research,” to be held April 12-14, 2022, in Washington, DC. 

 

UAA returns to Washington, D.C. to celebrate its 50th anniversary of annual meetings. The Opening Plenary of the 2022 conference will address the theme, “The State of Urban Affairs and the State of Urban Affairs Research.” This theme sets the stage for the overarching goals of the conference, which are: (1) to better understand our past, (2) to assess current realities, and (3) to create visions for the future that support a global urban research agenda.  The conference will provide opportunities to assess urban affairs as a field, and to develop ideas for enhancing its long-term prospects and impacts. 

 

UAA encourages proposals for paper, panel, colloquy, and roundtable sessions to stimulate thinking and re-thinking of urban affairs, and to widen intellectual and professional networks. 

 

Complete details about UAA 2022, including the full Call for Participation, are available on the conference website. UAA 2022 will feature approximately 200 interdisciplinary sessions, a variety of professional development and networking opportunities, book exhibits, and more.
