Africa is an increasingly urban continent. How is this urbanity being produced? What form is it taking? And how is it being represented? This research seminar will explore the multiple and varied facets of African urbanity today.
In doing so it will engage with both urban form and practices currently emerging, seeking to capture both their local manifestations as well as their regional, and global relevance. We will welcome a series of scholars and practitioners who are currently redefining what we understand by African urbanity.
