Colin McFarlane

Colin’s work focusses on the experience and politics of the city. He explores how cities are known, lived and politicised. This includes research on urban densities, infrastructures, and learning across different cities, focussing in particular on the economic margins of the city.

He is the author of ‘Learning the City: Knowledge and Translocal Assemblage’ (Blackwell), a book focussed on the intersections between urban inequality, materiality, resistance and learning, as well as related edited collections, including: ‘Smart Urbanism: Utopian Vision or False Dawn?’ (Routledge, with Simon Marvin and Andres Luque-Ayala),
