|Report||The international conference Spatial Histories, Constructs and Practices, held on March 27-28, 2014, brought together a group of cross-disciplinary scholars from fields such as anthropology, history, literature, cultural studies, and urban studies working on spatial and urban transformations in the United States. These scholars from Germany, the UK, Denmark, the United States, and Canada discussed a wide variety of topics ranging from literary cartographies, processes of suburbanization, the antropocene, to the relationship between antebellum architectural discourse and the “creation” of the modern (white) subject. The conference was a huge success as it inspired new ideas and instigated the formulation of new strategies in the exigent understanding of the current changes in North American cities. It also created a network between various international scholars from esteemed institutions that will continue the dialogue as well as work together on new projects in the future, putting the Ruhr-University in the forefront of urban/spatial research.|
