Globalising Urbanisms

Developing frameworks for engagements and dialogue with urban scholarship globally, across a diversity of urban experiences.

Urban theory has historically been dominated by European and American perspectives, but the ‘southern turn’ has opened up discussion around a range of disciplinary and practice-based approaches to undertanding the processes, impacts and representations of urbanisation and urban experience in, and from, different regional contexts.

This priority theme focuses on developing frameworks for engagements and dialogue with urban scholarship globally, across a diversity of urban experiences, and on building comparative, cross-regional, insights into urban experiences through grounded, collaborative, and community-led research and practices.
