#CITYIMAGINARY #URBANHISTORY #GRASSROOTGOVERNANCE
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Journalism and Communication. I am interested in the smart city as a case of how technologized cities are imagined, and how these imaginaries relate to histories of imperialism, colonialism, and the Cold War. For now, I have focused mainly on China, but I am open to discussing this question in other contexts. In my research, I discuss the possibility of different urban futures and the diversity of welfare.
