AACSRE Participates in TCR Conference

A team of six researchers participated in the Transformation Through Policy: Signage and Communities workshop, co-chaired by Aparna Sundar and Charles R. Taylor. Other participants were Chris Auffrey, Steve Kopp, Hannah Marriott and Franklin Velasco. This interactive and dialogical session benefited from the cross-functional expertise across the group, all of whom shared an interest in conducting research on signage related issues.


Preconference activities included gathering literature on the core themes identified on the topic. In the group’s initial workshop session, insights gathered in the preconference phase were organized, categorized and synthesized. In the second session, smaller teams were used to develop a conceptual framework for the transformation of communities through policy formulated around signage. In the workshop’s final session, the conceptual framework was refined and an action plan for the project was developed. The post-conference activities of the group are to prepare and submit a paper for publication in the Journal of Public Policy and Marketing.

The International Academic Association on Planning, Law, and Property Rights (PLPR) hosted its 13th annual conference 18 – 23 February 2019 at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, USA. The event was hosted by the Texas A&M College of Architecture (led by our very own Dawn Jourdan) at the university’s Memorial Student Center, one of the nation’s premier student unions.  More than 22 countries were represented at the PLPR conference in College Station. ​


Annual PLPR conferences provide an opportunity to present scholarship covering a broad array of topics residing at the intersection of planning, law, and/or property rights, and we welcome any proposed presentation situated accordingly. Because of Texas A&M’s location and faculty expertise, the 2019 conference offers an opportunity to present planning, law, and property rights scholarship speaking directly to the conference theme — “Preparing for Climate Change in the Planned and Unplanned City.”
