Welcome to the Athena Lecture:
Learning from where? Pedagogies for an Urban Age
Professor Jane Margaret Jacobs, Yale-NUS College Singapure
This paper reflects historically and pedagogically on the geographical imagination needed to understand urbanisation today. I begin by restating the case for why we need to use a comparative and transnational imagination when speaking about urbanisation today, drawing on the example of operational urban learning in post-independence Singapore. I end by reflecting on what this means for how we teach urban studies in and out of the class room.
