Urban Processes

“The task of comprehending contemporary cities demands that we interrogate theories of urban transformation- not simply validate them- and query the concrete processes under way. ¬†How does urbanization under capitalism function according to specific histories and geographies? Are creative destruction and accumulation by dispossession the logics underpinning every instance of displacement, or are there other dynamics at work? When does neoliberal governmentally enhance and when does it constrain our ability to understand emerging rationalities of rule?” – Austin Zeiderman, Endangered City, p. 21-22.
