Collective international paper on ‘Early Career’ struggles in Urban Studies

When I was working at the Urban Institute and the Department of Urban Studies and Planning back in Sheffield, I designed and run for 3 years an ECR Post-Doc scheme to provide meaningful engagement to scholars who are too often isolated and not cared for.

Now that amazing group came out with this powerful international paper in City – Analysis of Urban Change, Theory, Action

A very powerful reading and expression of international solidarity: https://rsa.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/13604813.2022.2091826#.YtVmEexBwX6

 

PS – Chuffed by the generous acknowledgement… “We are grateful to Michele Lancione who established the ECR Urban Studies Network at the University of Sheffield, UK in 2018. Without Michele‚Äôs hard work, kindness, and support, as well as a dedication to empowering precarious colleagues, this article, the establishment of the Collective, and the international workshops from which they grew would not have been possible”
