“The World in the City: Metropolitanism and Globalization from the 19th century to the Present”
Annual conference of the International Graduate Research Program Berlin-New York-Toronto
The conference explores the question what role time plays in the characterization of the metropolis and the global processes that sustain metropolitan life. Over the past three decades, both urban studies and globalization studies have predominantly focused on spatial concerns, often neglecting the important temporal dimensions of global urban development. The conference therefore seeks to systematically examine the diverse temporal aspects of global exchange and metropolitan development.
