Dislocating Urban Studies: New issue of the Urban Matters journal.
A new issue titled “Dislocating Urban Studies” is out in the Urban Matters journal.
The Issue, edited by Claudia Fonseca Alfaro, Özlem Celik, Defne Kadioglu, and Lorena Melgaço Silva Marques, is based on the Dislocating Urban Studies workshop, which in 2021 reunited scholars working on/in/out of the margins of theory and practice. The content offers a glimpse of the topics and rich discussions that arose during that workshop, engaging in critical dialogue and exploring different starting points or strategies that contribute to dislocating the centre of the field.
