*Hosted by James Cook University, the Tropics of the Imagination

Imaginaries”—will be held at the Rendezvous Hotel in Singapore, September
6-9, 2017. The keynote speaker will be architect, academic, and TV

*The Tropics of the Imagination* conference takes a multidisciplinary and
imaginative approach to culture and nature of the tropics worldwide. It is
open to researchers, research students, and the learned public. Writers,
artists, film-makers, academics and other creative individuals, who find
the Tropics a source of inspiration, are brought together at this
conference where they discuss the creative potential and possibilities of
the Tropics.

We welcome Abstracts for presentations of relevance to imaginative and
creative approaches to culture and nature in the tropics from various
disciplinary perspectives. This year's conference theme is “Living Cities:
Tropical Imaginaries.”
