Meeting Description: The Urban Space Research Network (USRN) was founded in 2009 at the Center for the Study of Language and Society at the University of Bern. The annual symposium is a joint cooperation between the Urban Space Research Network (USRN) and the fields of Interdisciplinary linguistics at the University of Bremen and English linguistics at Heidelberg University. Welcoming interdisciplinary contributions, the network sets out to analyse urbanity and 'place' to be socially and linguistically constructed and to investigate social and cultural phenomena in and of space.

The symposium is interdisciplinary by nature and invites contributions and topics from the fields of linguistics, literary and cultural studies, sociology, architecture as well as all related disciplines that focus on sign-based processes of urban communication. The symposium builds on discussions of past USRN forums, but is always open to new submissions and welcomes all researchers who are interested in contributing to the network’s work.
