Remembering, Forgetting and City Builders critically explores how
urban spaces are designed, planned and experienced in relation to
the politics of collective and personal memory construction.
Bringing together case studies from North America, South Asia,
Eastern Europe and the Middle East, the book analyzes how contested
national, ethnic and cultural sentiments clash in planning and
experiencing urban spaces. Going beyond the claim that such
situations exist in many parts of the world because communities
construct their 'past memories' within their current daily life and
future aspirations, the book explores how the very acts of planning
and urban design are rooted in the existing structures of hegemonic
power. With contributors from the fields of architecture,
geography, planning, anthropology and sociology, urban studies and
cultural studies, the book provides a rich, interdisciplinary view
into the conflicts over memory and belonging which are spatially
expressed and mediated through the official planning apparatus.
