New sociologies of urban public space II: contact, conflict and care

| |
Urban public settings are central sites for encounters across social difference. Global urbanization and transnational mobility mean that heterogeneity increasingly defines our experiences in public space. However, sociological work on interactions between strangers in everyday urban life remains relatively marginal. The recent turn to the ‘geography of encounter’ (Valentine 2008) has partly taken up this challenge, but this literature is in dire need of the rich insights that sociologists and anthropologists can provide. In Part 2 of this two-part session, panelists draw on empirical case studies that demonstrate ways to situate and develop a contemporary sociology of urban public space.
