New Directions in Planning Theory Ashgate Book Series Listings Series Editors: Gert de Roo, University of Groningen, The Netherlands; Jean Hillier, Newcastle University, UK and Joris Van Wezemael, University of Fribourg, Switzerland
Ashgate's series, New Directions in Planning Theory, develops and disseminates theories and conceptual understandings of spatial and physical planning which address such challenges as uncertainty, diversity and incommensurability.
Planning theories range across a wide spectrum, from questions of explanation and understanding, to normative or predictive questions of how planners should act and what future places should look like.
These theories include procedural theories of planning. While these have traditionally been dominated by ideas about rationality, in addition to this, the series opens up to other perspectives and also welcomes theoretical contributions on substantive aspects of planning. Other theories to be included in the series may be concerned with questions of epistemology or ontology; with issues of knowledge, power, politics, subjectivation; with social and/or environmental justice; with issues of morals and ethics. Planning theories have been, and continue to be, influenced by other intellectual fields, which often imbue planning theories with awareness of and sensitivity to the multiple dimensions of planning practices. The series editors particularly encourage inter- and trans-disciplinary ideas and conceptualisations.
Olivier Graefe, professor of Human geography is invited speaker in the Geography Colloquium of the University of Georgia in Athens. Title of is talk is 'Scarcity, Water and Power Relations in Africa'.
Geocolloquium: Every Tuesday, 17.15-1815, Geography auditorium 0.26. Look at the program in the EVENTS section.
