The Urban Lifeworld
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Urban conditions are crucial to our experience of modernity, and, as reflected by art, literature and popular culture, have influenced contemporary ideas of what urban life is about. The Urban Lifeworld contributes to our understanding of the cultural role of cities by offering new insight into the analysis of urban experience. Two exceptional cities, New York and Copenhagen, are the focus of this exploration of cultural representations of urban life, which investigates the contrasts between perceptions and formation of the urban lifeworld. Integrating sociological, aesthetic and anthropological approaches to urban questions, this collection of essays presents a new vision of the cityscape which will enrich both academic debate and public life. Peder Boas Jensen, Peter Marcuse, Jens Kvorning, Helle Bogelund-Hansen, Birgitte Darger, Hans Ovesen, Joan Ockman, Gwendolyn Wright, Graham Shane, Andrea Kahn, Henrik Reeh, Robert Snyder, Martin Zerla
