The goal of this conference is to build bridges among educators, scholars, artists, activists, residents, city planners, and public officials whose respective work engages issues of "the city" or "city life." The conference will have two main thrusts: 1) to foster cross-disciplinary dialogue about issues of language, community and culture in the contemporary city and its surroundings; 2) to promote dialogue about these issues as they relate specifically to Baltimore City.

Organizers of panels, workshops, discussion circles or breakout sessions must provide the above information for each participant, together with their own contact information, and a brief description/summary (250-300 words) of the overall rationale for the proposed panel or session.
