How can we understand the variety and dynamism of contemporary cities and urban experience across the globe?

'Engaged Urbanism: Cities and Methodologies', edited by Dr Ben Campkin and Prof Ger Duijzings, showcases the exciting ways urbanists are responding to the variety and dynamism of contemporary cities across the globe – from Beirut to Johannesburg, Kisumu, London, Mumbai and Rio de Janeiro. In this handbook of collaborative and experimental research practices, over forty contributors provide succinct, frank and carefully illustrated commentaries on the trials and successes of risk-taking research. They reveal how they collaborate across fields of expertise, inventing or adapting methods to bespoke situations and common challenges. At once theorists, artists, designers, or activists, what binds them is a commitment to better, fairer, cities.

Published by I.B. Tauris, the book will be available at the launch.

Presented in partnership with Free Word.
