Overlooking is a multi-faceted process, reflecting different power relations, political economies, knowledge networks and resource allocations unique to each individual city. Processes of overlooking therefore strike at the very heart of what we understand to be “the urban” throughout many parts of the world.
We invite urban scholars into our collective to broaden the scope of this project and to deepen our understanding of the urban from the perspective of overlooked cities.
These cities matter to our collective urban future.
