May 17, 2021: Join us to celebrate 24 hrs of Philosophy of the City

It's been a while since the last update of this blog. However, I don't want to miss the opportunity to invite all readers to join the Philosophy of the City Research Group on May 17, 2021, to celebrate 24 hours of Philosophy of the City. Please visit the conference website for more information and registration.

A bit of additional background information: As you may recall, the Philosophy of the City Research group decided to cancel all conferences and summer schools for 2020 and 2021, since we believe in the added value of international meetings. We didn't wanted to miss out on the diversity of perspective that you commonly will find at a PotC event.

However, in Fall 2021, the board of directors decided to hold a global virtual event. Not so much to replace a "real" conference, but to work on something together with our colleagues from across the globe. Thus, the idea of 24 hours of Philosophy of the City was born. And we are delighted that we received a sufficient number of good submissions from various timezone to embrace the adventure.

In all seriousness, I do not expect anyone to join us for 24 hours. But if you join us for a while, it might be great to know that you just became part of a worldwide initiative.
