Spatial Refiguration: Dynamics, Challenges, and Conflicts

Third International Conference of the Collaborative Research Centre (SFB 1265) „Refiguration of Spaces“

Since 2018, the collaborative research centre SFB 1265 “Refiguration of Spac-es” has brought together more than 60 researchers from the disciplines of sociology, architecture, urban plan-ning, geography, media and commu-nication studies. Following the central hypothesis of the SFB that the radical changes in socio-spatial orders which have emerged since the late 1960s require a new concept and theories beyond globalisation, the forthcoming international conference will invite renowned international scholars and a wide-ranging academic and transdis-ciplinary audience to discuss prelimi-nary research outcomes. How can the concept of the refiguration of spaces help make conflictual transformation processes more tangible and enable a better understanding of the underlying dynamics which shape new conflicts and challenges? How do these conflicts manifest themselves in spatial knowl-edge, in new forms of digital commu-nication and decision making, or in knowledge circuits, mobilities and flows across globally connected societies?
