About this Book

Learning the City: Translocal Assemblage and Urban Politics critically examines the relationship between knowledge, learning, and urban politics, arguing both for the centrality of learning for political strategies and developing a progressive international urbanism.  

  • Presents a distinct approach to conceptualising the city through the lens of urban learning
  • Integrates fieldwork conducted in Mumbai's informal settlements with debates on urban policy, political economy, and development
  • Considers how knowledge and learning are conceived and created in cities
  • Addresses the way knowledge travels and opportunities for learning about urbanism between North and South
