GSA Interdisciplinary Network
URBAN SOCIETY AND CULTURE
The interdisciplinary URBAN SOCIETY AND CULTURE NETWORK brings together scholars interested in cities and city cultures. While our anchor is in Germany and Europe, we welcome international and transnational perspectives on urban society, culture, politics, and history.
Cities have greatly influenced human life since the development of agriculture, political dominion, and territorial expansion. Industrialization and warfare center in, destroy, and rebuild them, while social movements and governance structures are crushed and birthed in them. Urban crucibles forge and are fired by cultural expression. These days, technological changes, the mobility of market and of certain labour flows, as well as the centralization of capital with concomitantly expanding global reach make urban spaces perhaps more significant and dynamic than ever before.
The URBAN SOCIETY AND CULTURE NETWORK's
is organizing a series of panels at the
2015 GSA in Washington DC.
