The city after chinese new towns

The course presents and discusses contemporary Chinese new towns focusing on two main issues: the spatial features and there gionalscaling-up of the Chinese urbanization processes.

While presenting these issues, on the one hand the course will emphasize the specificity of some investigated contexts, on the other, it will transcend the specific cases in order to question urban studies beyond the (alleged) exceptionality of Chinese urbanization.

By adopting this approach Chinese new towns become an object of study as well as a specific view point from which to radically re-discuss old categories, interpretations, and even the epistemology of the urban.
