Relaunching City: the culmination of 8 years of editorial work, and moving on!

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:

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.

UTS Urban Forum


I have launched a reading/discussion group on the Urban at the University of Technology of Sydney. Here is the website:

The Urban Forum is an informal reading/discussion group around “the urban”, from many different perspectives: urban transformation, sociology, geography and ethnography, performativity and concepts of urban space, and urban marginalization, are just some of the topics that may be of interest. This website is the platform where we publicise our meetings, which varies from book presentations to other kind of discussions. We will also publicise call for papers, news on recent books and similar. To follow us, you can choose the RSS format, the email digest (to which you can subscribe on the homepage), or Twitter (here).

If you would like to get involved, to suggest a guest for the Forum, or to upload materials to this website, please write to us in the “contact” page.
