For its 17th volume (Summer 2010), Critical Planning invites articles that explore the question of resilience empirically, theoretically, and historically in specific urban contexts around the world. We welcome papers and creative projects that investigate resilience in relation to: theoretical problems (sustainability, development, scale, diversity); ongoing environmental/ecological concerns (climate change, dwindling natural resources); the changing urban built environment (sprawl, the rural/urban interface); unfolding civil conflict and struggle (urban social movements); movements of people (migration and refugee flows); evolving socioeconomic regimes (neoliberalism, market socialism); and the interplay of political ideologies and collective imaginaries, among other topics.
