Urban Identities (NEMLA 2013)

This panel proposes to examine the various ways in which marginalized subjects appropriate and / or adapt to the spatial practices of exclusion and marginalization in contemporary neo-liberal societies. The panel will question the identity claims and spatialized performances of marginalized subjects in the urban context, particularly in terms of class, race, and gender. Please send 300-500 word abstracts in either English or French and brief biographical statements by 15 September 2012 to
