Blog: PopupCity

popupcity.net

The Pop-Up City is a project in which we will explore new concepts, strategies and methods for a dynamic and flexible interpretation of contemporary urban life.

More than ever societies are strongly linked to global developments that have a substantial influence on the local scale. Changes take place continuously with more and more acceleration. Today’s world cities deal with many problems related to rapidly increasing international societal, cultural, technologic and economic transformation processes. More variableness in economic, political and cultural patterns leads to new expectations and renewals of dynamic capacities of the city. Our aim is to search for creative solutions regarding flexible urbanism and architecture. Continue reading Blog: PopupCity

Blogcloud Urbanistikae

http://www.urbanistika.ee/

URBANISTIKA.EE is a cloud of blogs that debate different areas dealing with urban issues. Its aim is to become an open discussion agora for all who are interested in cities and their future, while dealing with subjects such as urban planning, architecture, activism, urban studies, writings about cities, neighbourhood analyses and specific cities, as well as events that happen regarding these themes.

We are based in Tallinn, Estonia, acting as a local internet-based forum for action, research and dialogue within the city of Tallinn, joining all sectors possible. Beyond locality, we try to enrich the experience of cities around the globe and open the windows to the outside world. Our goal is to provoke discussion and work towards more intelligent planning and better urban life. As support, urbanistika.ee provides a publication channel for articles, projects and thesis works.

Some of the main concerns of this website are:

  • Debate
  • Consultation
  • Exchange
  • Contact platform
  • Constant communication

The core group behind the project consists of students, alumnae and teachers of the Urban Studies MA in the Estonian Academy of Arts.

AK Kritische Geographie

http://criticalgeography.blogsport.de/

Geographie mal anders

Die Suche nach emanzipatorischer Theorie und Praxis1

Die Geschichte der deutschen Geographie und ihrer Etablierung an Hochschulen und Schulen war eng
mit staatlichen und wirtschaftlichen Interessen verbunden. Die Geographie zielte nicht nur auf wissenschaftlichem Erkenntnis- und Forschungsdrang, sondern war auch auf die Erziehung zum heimatliebenden Deutschen, auf die Erkundung ferner Territorien, Unterwerfung der lokalen Bevölkerungen und ‚Inwertsetzung‘ ihrer Ressourcen sowie auf die Planung und Rechtfertigung von imperialistischem und nationalsozialistischem Expansionsstreben gerichtet.
Auch heute wird die Geographie von bürgerlich-liberalen bis rechts-konservativen Kreisen dominiert. Emanzipatorisches Wissen und emanzipierende Praktiken finden daher an der Universität immer noch kaum einen Platz.

Der offene Arbeitskreis Kritische Geographie steht im Zeichen einer Geographie jenseits des nationalstaatlichen Herrschaftsapparats und kapitalistischer Verwertungslogik; anstatt Wirtschaftsförderung sprechen wir von Kapitalismuskritik, statt mehr oder weniger verdecktem Rassismus und Sexismus, sagen wir Internationalismus und feministische Geographie, statt einer Geographie über Andere, wollen wir gemeinsam Geographie mit Menschen machen, insbesondere mit und für diejenigen, denen gesellschaftliche Teilhabe verwehrt wird.

Folgende Themen sind die inhaltlichen Schwerpunkte unseres AK’s und unserer Treffens:

  • Marxismus und Geographie
  • Kritische Geographie und Geographiekritik
  • Feministische Geographie
  • Poststrukturalistische Geographie(n)
  • Offene Geographie und Aktionsforschung
  • Kritische Geopolitik und Arbeitsgeographie
  • Imperialismusforschung und Antirassismus
  • „Zerstörung“ und Kontrolle des öffentlichen Raums
  • Soziale Produktion von Raum
  • Politics of Identity & Spatiality
  • und noch vieles mehr….
