Conference: Comparing Cities

March 7, 2013

The Institute will co-host an international conference on comparative urban studies on Friday, March 15. Scholars from across the disciplines will ask: How do local governments and ordinary citizens respond to these pressures which may threaten their homes and ways of life? How do cities in a world growing flat preserve or renew their identities as unique places? What can cities from the Global North and Global South learn from each other?
