Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will critically engage with issues raised by Scenescapes: How Qualities of Place Shape Social Life (University of Chicago Press), by Daniel Silver and Terry Nichols Clark. Core topics include: the importance of the concept of scene for general urban theory; the factors and dimensions that define the qualities of a local scene; the impact of local scenes on economic growth, residential patterns, and politics; how scenes reproduce but also may bridge social divisions; and policy implications. Speakers will bring to bear diverse intellectual backgrounds on these topics from human ecology, economic geography, cultural policy, and social geography.
