#36 Inequalities in education

In this conversation I contend that amongst the clamour for schools to ‘return to normal’ teaching professionals need to step back, reflect on their Covid-19 experience, and use it as a springboard for creating schools for the twenty-first century. While researching teacher attrition and resilience, which coincided with the Covid-19 pandemic, I was able to hear from the chalkface of serving educational profes...

#37 Finding a home in the pacific

Before Covid-19, Aotearoa New Zealand performed as a proxy of the Global North. We traded and travelled back and forth between Europe and the Americas, with and via Asia and Africa. That life has been suspended. The pandemic has revealed our true location as a Pacific land—and geographic distance has never been of more advantage. All that blue lashing our edges on the globe, marking our islands as distant i...

#38 Public space 2

The governance of Covid-19 pandemic has been broadly framed by policymakers as “a war against an invisible threat”. Across the globe, countries have implemented a range of lockdown policies to contain Covid-19. During these lockdowns, cities worldwide looked as if they really were in the midst of a war. In most cases, restrictions were placed on movement and social interaction,...

#39 Metropolization

In recent years, in France, the notion of metropolization has migrated from the academic vocabulary to the political debate. The term is most often used in a pejorative way to designate a set of territorial upheavals deemed harmful: the concentration of populations and activities in the largest cities, the progressive decline of small [...]

#40 Working class neighbourhoods

When the first lockdown was imposed in France, we launched an action research project, on the effects of Covid-19 on working-class neighbourhoods in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region (SCIVIQ project). In the ethnography conducted in a commune in the suburbs of Bordeaux, we found that the experience of the pandemic and of government health measures are linked to the relationships that the inhabitants have with th....

#41 Contemporary cities

The great recession (2008) and the Pandemic (2020) have redefined the balances and economies of European cities, but we could easily scale this consideration globally, however, in this conversation I will stay within the EU borders. The first crisis at least had the advantage of being progressive and of affecting only the demand side, the second instead hit us like an asteroid. The crisis induced by Covid tri...

#42 Hope in cities

Thursday, February 24, 2022, I lay in bed unable to sleep. Two days before, Russia announced that it would recognize the independence of two pro-Russian Ukrainian territories and this morning, the invasion of Ukraine began. I was at a loss. Speaking to others – friends, relatives, students, and colleagues – it was clear that I was not alone. Fear, sadness, uncertainty, frustration, anger… the emotions roiling inside of us were legion. This was not new: It brought me b...

#43 EURA conferences

The annual EURA conference has been and, hopefully, will continue to be the ‘heartbeat’ and meeting point for our organisation and urban researchers committed to international exchange. Therefore, it was with deep disappointment we had to cancel the Oslo conference in 2020 because of the Covid-19 pandemic The conference was still implemented a year later as a smaller but rather successful online event. We exp...
