Abstract

At the turn of the 21st Century globalisation was the watchword, and global cities were a key point of reference. Subsequently, globalisation, always a slippery term, has lost a precision that previously it had held for many commentators; instead our perspectives are being refocused as situated and diverse experiences: globalisations.Academic colleagues keen to avoid extrapolating the Northern hemisphere experience to the South, as well as wanting to highlight multiple differences in the urban experience, have adopted a variety of terms to signal this new focus: 'worlding', comparative urbanism, and planetary urbanism being the most popular. The urban experience, and our knowledge of it, is undergoing a transformation as never before.
