(Sub)Urban Development Processes. Mapping Developing Urban Forms in the Global South.
Tutor: Marco Trisciuoglio
Meta-geographical visions of the “urban world” animate contemporary discussions. However, there is a massive disagreement about what needs to be studied. Current social, economical and political changes drive the global urbanization process. This process is creating inequality and uneven spatial development, within and between, rural and urban regions. New processes that initiate in the margins challenge traditional dependencies of “outsides” from “insides” in the urban context. In this sense, this research frames the emerging conditions in the Global South’s suburban scenarios. It is in these scenarios that the new morphologies, compositions and meanings of (sub) urban development flourish.
