We have two newly published journal articles which draw on research from our smart eco-cities project. Both are available on open access.
The first was co-authored by Linjun Xie, Andrew Flynn, May Tan-Mullins, Ali Cheshmehzangi, and appears in the journal Political Geography. It reviews the development of Chongming Eco-Island from a political ecology perspective. Download the article
The second, by Simon Joss, Frans Sengers, Daan Schraven, Federico Caprotti and Youri Dayot, explores the smart city as a global discourse network, through an analysis of related online texts from cities around the world. It appears in the Journal of Urban Technology. Download the article
Several of our team members have also contributed to a recent volume on Remaking Sustainable Urbanism, edited by Xiaoling Zhiang. Our China team members Linjun Xie, May Tan-Mullins, and Ali Cheshmehzangi discuss the political ecology of Chinese smart eco-cities; Federico Caprotti (UK team) reflects on the role of inter-city partnerships in China and Europe; and Martin de Jong (Netherlands team) explores city branding in Chinese cities. You can find details of the book, published by Palgrave, here.
