Not mine, but I wanted to publicize two very interesting calls for papers that for various reasons I’m not going to be able to participate in, but other night-interested people should!
Luc Gwiazdzinski and Will Straw are continuing their run of interesting and unique night-related collections with a call for papers on Nights and Mountains for the Journal of Alpine Research. I’ll be really interested to see what this brings up – it makes me think of climbers going up Scafell Pike in the night in the UK’s three peak challenge.
The other call is for a session unpacking the allure of of the Mediterranean Urban Night at the Congresso geografico italiano. The nightlife of Mediterranean cities and towns has been fetishised in urban planning and our imagination of the night, so this could be a very interesting session. Details are here in both Italian and English, and it’s arranged by Emanuele Giordano of the Université Paul Valéry Montpellier 3 and Gabriele Manella of the Università di Bologna, with Adam Eldrige from the University of Westminster invited.
