Samstag, 9. Dezember, 15:00 Uhr, Conference
Shrinking Cities: Negotiating Inequality

Shrinking Cities are no singular or exceptional phenomenon, they are just the other, less noticed, side of growth and concentration - the "losers of globalisation". Processes that can be witnessed in booming New York stand in direct relation to population loss and economic decline in other regions.
Growth means that shrinkage is happening elsewhere: From the global to the local scale, growth and shrinking always make a joint appearance - sociospatial polarisation processes and the competition between places are increasing within cities, regions and beyond. Hence, shrinking cities will become an ever more present phenomenon that we have to deal with.
Speakers will include Phillip Oswalt, curator; Johannes Fiedler, contributor; Damon Rich, RostenWoo, Center for Urban Pedagogy, contributors; and Neil Smith, Center for Place, Culture and Politics, CUNY; Peter Marcuse, Columbia University, New York
