Debating Urban Studies in 23 Steps

Debating urban studies in 23 stepsI have recently taken over the Debates section at CITY, and have published a somewhat polemical piece looking at how to reposition Urban Studies so that the 100th anniversary of gentrification is a funeral not a coming-of-age party. It includes a wide ranging set of reconsiderations, from key ideas which need revisiting to major institutional changes.

The piece is designed to spur debate, so please contact me if you would like to submit a response, or a debates piece of another kind. Don't hesitate to email me if you can not get past the paywall.
