Looking for readings to impart a sense of current academic urban studies
February 10, 2013 10:03 PM Subscribe
Long-term, I'm thinking of going back to grad school but I'm unsure what subject I'd want to do it in. In parallel, I simply have an itch to know more about urban studies that I'd like to scratch. Given this is a long-term goal, I thought it would be nice to get to the point where I am at least quasi-fluent in modern urban studies. I'm looking for any suggestions towards this end, though I was thinking about just compiling a list of influential works and papers, read those, then follow any particularly intriguing citations and so on. My goal is to at least have a critical (ideally not shallow but not super deep) understand at the level of a masters student, let's say.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
