Solidarity Statement

The City Institute at York University strongly condemns the recent Islamophobic events of this past week, namely the US travel ban on those living in certain mainly Muslim-majority countries and the fatal shooting at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Center in Quebec City. We pass on our deepest sympathies to all those targeted by these related events, and our solidarity to everyone fighting against such outrageous and avoidable bigotry and violence. And we stand with those in communities who are living with uncertainty and fear about the continuing impact of both Canadian and US American policy on their lives. As an academic unit that has as its mandate the facilitation and conduct of critical, diverse, interdisciplinary and collaborative urban research that advances social justice, we denounce any and all violence and will vigorously resist actions which serve to foment discord and intolerance at every level of society. The human imperative of connection demands nothing less. The Institute values diversity across race, class, gender and sexuality, and strives for inclusion and respect, which demands that we continue to ensure that the knowledge we produce is based on openness, transparency, and collaboration. We will continue to work towards a more just world and to seek ways to work across our differences, to embrace our differences, and to lift each other up in the process.

The Executive Committee of the City Institute

Urbanization in a Global Context
edited by Alison L. Bain and Linda Peake

“Urbanization in a Global Context is a contributed text that helps Canadian students understand the process of urbanization by examining cities outside Canada across the global North and South. Truly international in its approach, it emphasizes the interconnectedness of urban places and fosters analysis that identifies the similarities and differences between cities in different world regions. Each chapter focuses on different contemporary urban issues – ranging from urban policy, climate change, and gender to transportation and water governance – and introduces current urban scholarly debates, grounding them in international case studies.”

Urban Geography Workshop/Seminar Support Award

Request for Proposals

Urban Geography will award up to $2,000 to support a seminar series, workshop, or similar event which will bring together leading scholars to focus on a cutting-edge theme within Urban Geography. The expectation is that this award will be supported by the host department and institution either in-kind (e.g., staff time, event planning, space, scheduling, and other forms of administrative support) and/or in terms of more direct financial support. It is also hoped that the award will be used to leverage additional co-sponsors. Proposals are welcome from scholars and programs without regard to discipline.  However, a primary focus on Urban Geography is necessary. Funding decisions will be based upon the cohesiveness of the proposal, the support of the host department and institution, as well as funding partners, the academic reputation of the organizers, and the potential visibility of the program including its overall academic impact.

Proposals are due on November 1, 2017 and all material should be sent to Thomas Cooke, Co-Editor, Urban Geography by e-mail (thomas.cooke@uconn.edu). A decision will be made in early December, 2017. Please send the following as attachments (PDF is preferred): (1) a one-page proposal which outlines the broad themes of the project and their significance, a general plan for the project, the academic impact of the project, and any discrete outcomes, (2) abbreviated, one-page, CVs for all organizers, (3) letters of support from the home department, home institution, and co-sponsors which outline their roles, and (4) a one-page outline of the proposed schedule including potential participants. Questions can be directed to Thomas Cooke.

Governing Cities through Regions 9781771122771_cover_rb_modalcover
Canadian and European Perspectives
edited by Roger Keil; Julie-Anne Boudreau; Stefan Kipfer & Pierre Hamel

‘Governing Cities Through Regions broadens and deepens our understanding of metropolitan governance through an innovative comparative project that engages with Anglo-American, French, and German literatures on the subject of regional governance. It expands the comparative angle from issues of economic competitiveness and social cohesion to topical and relevant fields such as housing and transportation, and it expands comparative work on municipal governance to the regional scale.

With contributions from established and emerging international scholars of urban and regional governance, the volume covers conceptual topics and case studies
that contrast the experience of a range of Canadian metropolitan regions with a
strong selection of European regions. It starts from assumptions of limited
conversion among regions across the Atlantic but is keenly aware of the
remarkable differences in urban regions’ path dependencies in which the larger
processes of globalization and neo-liberalization are situated and
materialized.’
