This book concerns the city and the 'devices' that define the urban environment by their presence, representation or interpretation. The texts offer an interdisciplinary discourse and critique of the complex systems, artifacts, interventions and evidences that can inform our understanding of urban territories; on surfaces, in the margins or within voids. The diverse media of arts practices as well as commercial branding are used to explore narratives that reveal latent characteristics of urban situations that conventional architectural inquiry is unable to do.

For a city in India's northeast that has been embroiled in the everyday militarization and violence of Asia's longest-running separatist conflict, Dimapur remains 'off the map'. With no 'glorious' past or arenas where events of consequence to mainstream India have taken place, Dimapur's essence is experienced in oral histories of events, visual archives of the everyday life, lived reality of military occupation, and anxieties produced in making urban space out of tribal space. Ceasefire City aims to capture the dynamics of Dimapur by bringing together the fragmented sensibilities granted and contested in particular spaces in the city and the embodied experiences of the city by its residents. The first part of the book talks about military presence, capitalist growth, and urban expansion in Dimapur through an analysis of its spatial politics, and the second part, through collaborative ethnographic exercises, focuses on the relationship between the lived realities and the meanings that are forged around the city.

Graber Pulver Architects was founded in Switzerland in 1992. Since then, the firm has received many international design awards and undertaken numerous individualized projects, including the leopard pit in the Dählhölzli zoo in Berne, the Glarisegg boarding school in Steckborn, and the Rondo apartment house in Zürich. In Spatial Sequences and Urban Infrastructure, the firm’s founders Marco Graber and Thomas Pulver, reflect on their design process and projects and describe how they teach their approach to architectural design to students at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology. In this book, Graber and Pulver focus on the interaction between the practical application of architecture and its methods of instruction. Within any project, Graber and Pulver understand design as a process that includes the development of both the intellectual concept and the sensual dimension of the structure. Their unique working methods focus on the intersection of infrastructure and the demands of form, as well as the judgment of a structure that is developed by inhabiting and moving within it. Graber and Pulver also show these methods at work, using examples from student projects, accompanied by essays that investigate the students’ tasks and approaches. Spatial Sequences and Urban Infrastructure will be a fascinating contribution to the ongoing dialogue about architectural theory and its application.

Urban Comics: Infrastructure and the Global City in Contemporary Graphic Narratives makes an important and timely contribution both to comics studies and urban studies, offering a decolonisation and reconfiguration of both of these already interdisciplinary fields. With chapter-length discussions of comics from cities such as Cairo, Cape Town, New Orleans, Delhi and Beirut, this book shows how artistic collectives and urban social movements working across the global South are producing some of the most exciting and formally innovative graphic narratives of the contemporary moment. Throughout, the author reads an expansive range of graphic narratives through the vocabulary of urban studies to argue that these formal innovations should be thought of as a kind of infrastructure. This ‘infrastructural form’ allows urban comics to reveal that the built environments of our cities are not static, banal, or depoliticised, but rather highly charged material spaces that allow some forms of social life to exist while also prohibiting others. Built from a formal infrastructure of grids, gutters and panels, and capable of volumetric, multi-scalar perspectives, this book shows how urban comics are able to represent, repair and even rebuild contemporary global cities toward more socially just and sustainable ends. Operating at the intersection of comics studies and urban studies, and offering large global surveys alongside close textual and visual analyses, this book explores and opens up the fascinating relationship between comics and graphic narratives, on the one hand, and cities and urban spaces, on the other.

Pompeii is currently enjoying an exciting phase of new research, enhanced by the application of rigorous modern archaeological techniques. This book brings together twelve papers which present some of the new approaches and research aims; all relate to issues of sequence and space, and aim to further understanding both the development of Pompeii and the dynamics of ancient urban society. The contributions are: Sequence and space in Pompeii: an introduction (Rick Jones and Sara E. Bon); Formation processes at Pompeii (Sara E. Bon); What was Pompeii before 200 BC? Excavations in the House of Joseph II and in the House of the Wedding of Hercules (Paolo Carafa); The context of the House of the Surgeon (Sara E. Bon); Investigating the vocabulary of the Roman house (Eleanor W. Leach); The Pompeii forum project 1994-95 (John J. Dobbins); New directions in economic and environmental research at Pompeii (Jane Richardson, Gill Thompson and Angelo Genovese); Pompeii AD 79: a population in flux? (Estelle Lager); Private toilets at Pompeii (Gemma Jansen); The social texture of Pompeii (Damian J. Robinson); Sequence and space at Pompeii: casual observations from an Etruscologist (Jane K. Whitehead); Concluding thoughts (Stephen L. Dyson).

Post-Socialist Urban Infrastructures critically elaborates on often forgotten, but some of the most essential, aspects of contemporary urban life, namely infrastructures, and links them to a discussion of post-socialist transformation. As the skeletons of cities, infrastructures capture the ways in which urban environments are assembled and urban lives unfold. Focusing on post-socialist cities, marked by neoliberalisation, polarisation and hybridity, this book offers new and enriching perspectives on urban infrastructures by centering on the often marginalised aspects of urban research—transport, green spaces, and water and heating provision. Featuring cases from West and East alike, the book covers examples from Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Serbia, Croatia, Germany, Russia, Georgia, Lithuania, Poland, the Czech Republic, Tajikistan, and India. It provides original insights into the infrastructural back end of post-socialist cities for scholars, planners and activists interested in urban geography, cultural and social anthropology, and urban studies.

The dissertation's empirical project is to examine population distribution and urbanization dynamics in Eastern Europe. I investigate how spatial development occurred in the context of broader socioeconomic development, and how various policies and legacies affected settlement morphology and population redistribution. This analysis will use the cases of Hungary and Bulgaria. Hungary will be the central analytical case of this study, and I will use Bulgaria to demonstrate the intraregional heterogeneity of Eastern Europe.
