This subject explores both the concept and the reality of the Global City ranging from historical trajectories, and spatial hierarchies to the contemporary politics of their reimaging and revitalisation. The unit draws on consideration of the processes of globalisation, gentrification, consumption and urban contestation as a means of understanding and challenging both the contemporary notion of the neo-liberal city and the prospective implications of human futures in an urbanising world.
