With the Fifth American Studies Leipzig Graduate Conference “Urban America: Mediating City Space as Place,” we seek to investigate the cultural, social, and political production of spatial realms and places in an interdisciplinary framework. As a platform to discuss the complexity and representations of urban spaces and places, our conference invites all interested graduate students and professionals in the field of urban research. Within this unique forum, participants will have a chance to present their work to an international audience, allowing for excellent networking opportunities.
