Call for Papers
Revisiting Hegemony

15 Oct 2020

In the framework of the past Workshop “Revising the Concept of Hegemony”, we invite authors to think how hegemony operates spatially, discursively, and institutionally. At the same time, they are invited to think through case studies, situations and contexts. Therefore, we particularly call for contributions that:

  • look at how hegemony manifests through the material space and the politics of architecture, spatial planning and development,
  • attend to how we talk about hegemony in relation to the temporal realm and collective memory and,
  • reflect on how hegemony speaks to our current political paradigms of liberal democracy

We invite both short (3000 words) reflections on case studies or visual essays, as well as fully developed critical inquiries into the topic (7000-8000 words). We hope to produce a critically astute volume of analysis, contributions and reflections that address both a scholarly audience and a politically engaged public at large.
