With colleagues from various locations and disciplines, Moritz Kasper is co-organising an online symposium on "Flow/ Overflow/ Shortage: measuring and managing extreme urban conditions" on 24 and 25 May 2023.

Contemporary cities are racked by physical and infrastructural extremes - floods, droughts, heatislands, frozen pipes, lockdowns, stampedes, air pollution, rolling blackouts, electrical overloads. This symposium seeks to bring anthropologists, geographers, urban planners, architects, and scholars in related fields to discuss a broad array of cases drawn from across the world, infrastructure sectors, and histories. We encourage applications fromearly career researchers across the globe.

Abstracts can be submitted until 03 April 2023. Further information on submitting papers can be found here.
