The fifth edition of Urban ARC, the Annual Research Conference of the Indian Institute for Human Settlements, will be conducted between the 14 – 16 January 2021. The theme for this edition is ‘Urban Imaginaries: Past, Present and Future’. The idea of imaginaries holds a pivotal place in inquiry. Central to the very nature of knowledge production is the imagination of a better world. It is in keeping with this centrality of imaginations that Urban ARC 2021 invites papers and panels from a wide range of disciplinary spaces, situated in theoretical, methodological or practice-based approaches to the urban.
The conference aims to provide a critical and fruitful space for engagement across themes, sectors, methodologies and disciplines in order to enable an understanding and harness the potential of Urban Imaginaries. The conference will also host a special track focusing on post-COVID urban futures.
