After 8 years of work within City – Analysis of Urban Change, Theory and Action, the last two of which as one of the main Editors, it is time for me to move on and focus the (few) remaining energies on other collective projects (primarily Radical Housing Journal)
City is a great Journal. One of the few in Urban Studies that really tries hard to question its own makings and politics, and genuinely reaches beyond the inner circles of academic debates.
In the past three years, we worked HARD to relaunch it – devising a new Collective structure and a renewed critical spirit. The culmination of this work is a terrific relaunch issue, containing cutting-edge content from academics and activists from all over the world: https://www.tandfonline.com/toc/ccit20/current
It has been an honor for me to work with many great colleagues to achieve this, and a huge thanks go to my comrades in the City Editors team, Andrea Gibbons, Anna Richter, Antonis Vradis, David Madden, Debbie Humphry, and not least, Melissa Fernandez-Arrigoitia, who is also leaving with me to focus more energies on the RHJ. We will keep on supporting City’s work within the main City Collective.
