Published on Tuesday, July 03, 2018 by Anastasia Giardinelli

Summary

Drawing on different historical and geographical contexts, academic literature has produced since the 1960sa rich lexicon in various languages to analyse the global phenomenon of the territorial diffusion of urbanization. Just to mention a few: périurbain, sprawl (Gottman, 1967), suburbia (Fishman, 1987), desakota (McGee, 1989), exurbia (Nelson, 1992), Città diffusa (Indovina, 1990), post-suburbs (Phelps and Wu, 2011), Zwischenstadt (Sieverts, 2004). The reason of this prolific and bourgeoning literature in the field of urbanstudies is that the territorial diffusion of urbanization leads to reconsider the relationship between urbanismand territories. This workshop aims to examine this lexicon with the purpose of questioning the conceptual,disciplinary, and methodological frameworks that have oriented knowledge production on urbanization processesing different contexts and historical moments.

Presentation

Drawing on different historical and geographical contexts, academic literature has produced since the 1960sa rich lexicon in various languages to analyse the global phenomenon of the territorial diffusion of urbanization. Just to mention a few: périurbain, sprawl (Gottman, 1967), suburbia (Fishman, 1987), desakota (McGee, 1989), exurbia (Nelson, 1992), Città diffusa (Indovina, 1990), post-suburbs (Phelps and Wu, 2011), Zwischenstadt (Sieverts, 2004). The reason of this prolific and bourgeoning literature in the field of urbanstudies is that the territorial diffusion of urbanization leads to reconsider the relationship between urbanismand territories. This workshop aims to examine this lexicon with the purpose of questioning the conceptual,disciplinary, and methodological frameworks that have oriented knowledge production on urbanization processesing different contexts and historical moments.

Contributions to this workshop can develop a range of issues, including, but not limited to:

  1. The theoretical background of words and concepts associated with the territorial diffusionof urbanization;
  2. Empirical research based on the use of meaningful words;
  3. Comparisons between two or more fieldworks based on the words that are used toanalyse them;
  4. Historical and epistemological perspectives on concepts & words;
  5. The regional and international circulation of words & concepts in academic literature,urban analyses, or policies;
  6. Cultural and political representations that are associated with the use of certain words.
