International Association for the Study of Environment, Space, and Place. Call for Papers

Bolivian festival. From companymagazine.org
SEVENTH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION FOR THE STUDY OF ENVIRONMENT, SPACE, AND PLACE
SOUTHERN CONNECTICUT STATE UNIVERSITY: APRIL 29 - MAY 1, 2011
CONFERENCE THEME: THE SPACING OF FESTIVE ENACTMENTS
The Conference seeks to foster Crossdisciplinary—Interdisciplinary—Transdisciplinary conversations on the subject of the festive, festivity, festival in terms of spatial production: produced and producing. Presentations are to be 25 minutes with an additional 10 minutes for questions and discussion. Papers may be submitted for possible publication in the journal Environment, Space, Place. Panels are welcome.
Befitting a Feast: convivial, jovial, mirth, merrymaking, cheerful, rejoicing, glad, gaiety, joyous.
The festive is not merely a subjective feeling; the festive is not merely a spatial site designated/constructed to be a festive place. The festive involves spatial inscription including both enactments and built environments. The site of a World Series with its celebratory festivities becomes a site of horror during an earthquake. An ordinary city block becomes the site of the festive through the spatial enactments constituting “a block party.” Our goal for this conference is to examine festive enactments as taking place through the opportunities and limitations afforded by the spacing of built environments. How is spatiality itself agency in the production of the festive? How do festivities produce their own spatiality? How is built space to be constructed to promote the festive?
