Spatiality and Inclusivity

Convenors:
Jill Dickinson
Vicky Heap

This themed panel session focuses on the inter-relationship between space and inclusivity. It will explore the extent to which the design and development of different spaces and places over time either entice or dissuade particular social groups from engaging with them.

Factors might include:

  • the establishment of either physical or symbolic boundaries;
  • distinctions between spaces and places; and
  • the potential tensions between different stakeholder groups.
  • It is anticipated that papers may focus on a variety of social and legal issues, for example:
  • anti-social behaviour;
  • technology and spatiality;
  • law's influence on place-making;
  • spatial design considerations; and
  • cultural aspects.

In particular, contributions which encompass multi-disciplinary elements are particularly welcome.

Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair Platform. They must be no longer than 300 words and should include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for submissions is 6pm Monday 14th March.
