Informal Session: The Urban Pacific (!)
Saturday, February 3. 2:00 p.m.–5:30 p.m., Orleans
In this session we will focus on new urban research in the Pacific. We invite papers from across the region to this informal session. The goal of the session is to gain insight in to the kinds of research currently being done in the urban Pacific, to discuss topics that we see as crucial to understanding urban lives and processes that we do not think are currently being examined, to think collectively about the usefulness of conceptual or theoretical work developed in other urban settings globally
for study in the Pacific (e.g. infrastructure), and to discuss the methodological constraints surrounding urban-based research.
Those who have expressed interest so far include: JC Salyer, Tate LeFevre, Barbra Andersen, Ceridwen Spark, Siobhan McDonnell, Shu-Ling Yeh, Patrick Nason.
