[ Calls for Papers ]

UC Berkeley will be convening a conference entitled "Orienting Istanbul: Cultural Capital of Europe?" on Sept. 26/27, 2008.  Taking as a point of departure the selection of Istanbul as one of Cultural Capitals of Europe in 2010, the goal of this conference is to reflect on how cities and culture have become key to imagining communities in a globalizing word.
Abstract submissions are now solicited, with May 20 as deadline. More info at the conference website.
