Abstract
This volume aims to: 1) advance a distinctive cross-disciplinary research agenda ‘spatial cultures’ that enables exploration of the relationship between how cities work and what cities mean; 2) opens a new interdisciplinary research space for urban studies in which perspectives and methods from urban history can both inform and be informed by those originating in architecture and urban design research; 3) conceptualize the network organization of urban space as fundamental for understanding the performance of everyday social practices involving movement and communication; 4) historicize aspects of urban experience such as movement, distance, rest and encounter that are typically universalized across space and time; 5) examine how the historical nature of urban environments works to mediate the interplay of innovation and tradition in every day uses of urban space.
