Call for Papers: PLPR 2019 Conference 'Preparing for Climate Change in the Planned and Unplanned City'
The International Academic Association on Planning, Law, and Property Rights (PLPR) will hold its 13th annual conference 18 – 23 February 2019 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, USA. The event will be hosted by the Texas A&M College of Architecture at the university’s Memorial Student Center, one of the nation’s premier student unions.
Annual PLPR conferences provide an opportunity to present scholarship covering a broad array of topics residing at the intersection of planning, law, and/or property rights, and we welcome any proposed presentation situated accordingly. Because of Texas A&M’s location and faculty expertise, the 2019 conference offers an opportunity to present planning, law, and property rights scholarship speaking directly to the conference theme – “Preparing for Climate Change in the Planned and Unplanned City.”
Call for Papers
The PLPR invites papers addressing topics at the intersection of planning, law, and property rights for presentation to colleagues. Papers need not be comparative multinationally, but they should be interdisciplinary across the association’s themes. Papers addressing any topic thus situated are welcome for submission.
Additionally, the conference offers an opportunity to present work speaking to the conference theme for inclusion in a special track and/or theme sessions. Proposed presentations of PLPR scholarship exploring the impact of natural hazards and climate change on cities across the globe are especially welcome for inclusion in these sessions.
Abstract submissions are due by 1 Oct. 2018. Presenters will be notified of acceptance on or before 1 Nov. 2018.
