Deadline: "European towns between Western democracies and totalitarian systems"


Call for articles

Website "European City" (www.europeancity.cz) has issued a call for articles on the topic.

The 20th century brought not only a new political structure, but also intense debates on the remodelling of existing towns, the restoration of demolished towns, and the building of new towns. Although democratic societies and authoritarian movements of the left and right claimed opposing points of view relative to on economic, social and political organization, this call seeks to explore their similarities and differences by focusing on the influence of authoritarian and democratic politics on the urban planning and construction of twentieth-century cities. We would like all contributions to raise questions about the challenge of modernism, the changing conceptions of citizenship in urban policy after 1917 (1945), and the interaction, discussion, observation, and cooperation between "east" and "west" architects. Possible topics draw on a range of disciplines, including history, ethnology, politics, sociology, and urban planning.
