Out of Control Suburbs? Comparing Respresentations of Order, Disorder and Sprawl
National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra and the Cultures of the Suburbs International Research Network presents a symposium Out of Control Suburbs? Comparing Representations of Order, Disorder and Sprawl on Thursday and Friday, June 27 and 28 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. in the Mack Student Center.
The Network’s second symposium considers the nature and representation of suburbs, suburban life and sprawl whether local, regional or global. Where are the margins of suburbia and do they represent order, disorder or nostalgia? How is sprawl defined -- as organic social process or negative cultural impact? And how is it experienced by diverse communities and individuals? What are the aesthetics of order and sprawl? How do representations of suburban sprawl and disorder converge or diverge between the Global South and North -- and within the Global North?
Date/Time: Thursday and Friday, June 27 and 28, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Location: Multipurpose Room, Sondra and David S. Mack Student Center, North Campus
Admission: Fee (Free for Hofstra students and faculty)
This event is NOT open to the public
