Global Cities and Urban Society

This community of scholars examines urban societies in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Our experts span the globe, from Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles to London, Shanghai, and Cairo. Members of this group reach deep into the fabric of urban life, exploring events on the street, in cultural institutions, and at City Hall, while also situating these cities within a wider national and global context. Focused on the interplay of society, culture, and politics, they seek to comprehend how cities function and how their diverse residents pursue social change.
