The Cultures of the Suburbs Research Network will host its 2014 conference, Imagining the Suburbs, at the University of Exeter, UK, from 19 to 21 June 2014. Please note, the CFP deadline has now passed.

How do we imagine / re-imagine the world’s suburbs in the twenty-first century? How do current concepts of suburban space and experience sit with past ideologies and future planning? And how do these vary across different regions and in different social and political contexts? Are the suburbs unimaginative and outdated, or are they spaces for progress and change? And what part do (or might) the ‘cultures of the suburbs’ play in shaping and representing these environments?
