On Monday 18 November, 6:00pm, Edward W. Soja will be speaking at the University of Greenwich, Maritime Campus, King William Building, KW315.
Lecture: Urban restructuring over the past thirty years has been leading to a sea change in the very nature of the urbanization process. Signs of this change were recognized long ago in such terms as edge cities, outer cities, peripheral urbanization, boomburbs and metroburbia. But few realized what was happening represented the end of the modern metropolis, the urbanization of suburbia, and the emergence of a very new urban form and way of life. This shift is what is behind such new terms as regional urbanization, city regions, regional cities, megacity regions, megaregions, and such notions as the urbanization of the world and planetary urbanism. The lecture will provide detailed look at the regional urbanization process as it develops at several different scales.
