Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter



The late twentieth and early twenty first centuries have been characterised by an entrenchment of power within cities, and an unparalleled monetisation of their reputations and features as a result of accelerated tourism; but they have also brought a series of paradigms for interpreting the city that go as far as questioning its very existence. In this chapter, I consider the city as it has been analysed in light of postmodernism, globalisation and the advent of digital culture.
