Urban Salon: Mega-Urbanization in the Global South

Start: May 17, 2017 6:00:00 PM
End: May 17, 2017 7:30:00 PM

Urban Salon
With contributions from an international range of established and emerging scholars drawing upon real-world examples, Mega-Urbanization in the Global South (Routledge, 2016) is the first to use the lens of speed to examine the postcolonial ‘urban revolution’. From the mega-urbanization of Lusaka, to the production of satellite cities in Jakarta, to new cities built from scratch in Masdar, Songdo and Rajarhat, this book argues that speed is now the persistent feature of a range of utopian visions that seek to expedite the production of new cities.
