This roundtable is convened by the editors of the new Globalizing Cities Reader (Routledge, 2018). Originally published in 2006 and edited by Neil Brenner and Roger Keil, theReader curates both foundational works and cutting-edge research in global urban studies. Fully revised, the second edition of the Reader reflects how the geographies of urban theory have shifted away from the Western vantage point from which much of the classic work in global urban studies was developed. The book includes 60 chapters that cover both established global cities and less-known urban regions, both cities in the global North and global South that are undergoing processes of globalization and restructuring. The editors invite colleagues to join us for a lively conversation on the future directions of global urban studies, in theory, methods, and evidence.
