Lecture at the LSE: Putting Cities First
 
   
Event Date 05/12/2006
 
Location London 
 
Country United Kingdom 
 
Description Edward Soja, LSE Centennial Professor in the Cities Programme, will give a public lecture at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on Tuesday 5 December

The title is taken from the first chapter of Jane Jacobs' ‘The Economy of Cities’. Jacobs made the argument that without cities we would all be poor, that the 'spark' of urban economic life creates forces of creativity and innovation that have propelled societal development from the deepest past to the present. In his lecture, Professor Soja will explore this idea of the stimulus of urban agglomeration and its recent refocusing around such concepts as spatial capital and spatial justice, explaining why putting cities first -- emphasizing the effects of urban spatial causality -- is an insightful interpretive strategy in every discipline.

Edward Soja is an LSE Centennial Professor in the Cities Programme. He is also Professor of Urban Planning at UCLA.

‘Putting Cities First’ will take place at 6.30pm on Tuesday 5 December in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, London, WC2A. The event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
