Call for articles
Website "European City" (www.europeancity.cz) has issued a call for
articles on "Motion in the City".
Motion and process modify the urban environment and provide
fascinating scope for those interested in the field of urban studies.
Both repeated and routine motion are important in understanding the
functioning principles behind single urban localities and also whole
metropolitan regions. Migration, commuting, financial flows and the
flux of ideas. All these motions are the beats of the city and in
certain sense may be seen as the substance of the urban setting.
Motion can be evaluated from the perspectives of different academic
fields; many questions about the contemporary development of the city
reveal themselves. How has urban motion changed over the last decades?
What are the effects of technological innovation, in the field of
transport and the transfer of information, on the urban milieu? What
is the progress of intra-urban, internal and international migration
into cities? How do the different parts of a city differ in terms of
the rhythms and everyday motions of its population?
