GEOGRAPHIES OF INFORMATION BOOK LAUNCH AT THE GSD

Sep 30, 2015

UTL researcher Ali Fard, in collaboration with our colleague, GSD DDes candidate Taraneh Meshkani, recently launched their new co-edited volume, New Geographies 07: Geographies of Information, in a lively gathering at the Loeb Library, Harvard GSD.  Continuing the long tradition of cutting-edge research at the intersection between geography and design in the ongoing New Geographies project, this volume aims to explore and elaborate the spatial grounding of contemporary information and communication networks.  It argues, in particular, that new information and communications technologies (ICTs) exert a critical influence on the ongoing process of urbanization, in a wide range of settings and across multiple spatial scales.  The contributors to the volume examine the forms, imprints, places, and territories of ICTs through spatially grounded and nuanced investigations of diverse conditions in both advanced and emerging economies.  The volume is now available for purchase through Harvard University Press and popular vendors
