5th Urban China Forum
Chinese Cities: Emergence in a Globalizing Era

The Urban China Network at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation is pleased to announce the 5th Urban China Forum with the theme, “Chinese Cities: Emergence in a Globalizing Era.” While last year’s Forum explored transformative planning and urbanism, now we are proceeding to the further emergence of Chinese cities in the global context. The 5th Urban China Forum will feature experts and scholars from Columbia University School of Social Work, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, The New School, University of Bologna, University of Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Connecticut, University of Michigan, University of Texas at Austin, and Vassar College. Through keynote speeches and panels, they will present on a broad range of topics ranging from the history and future of Chinese cities to their urban development achievements and shortcomings in urban policies and planning practices. We look forward to sharing this lively exchange of insights with you on October 6th, 2018. Please register for the event, as seating is limited.
