I meant to post this a while ago. Here is a special issue of the Lo Squaderno journal (open access) on urban knowledge.
The above is the cover that includes one of the photos used throughout the issue. My article on popular culture and urban knowledge is the closing piece. I tried to reflect a little on how popular culture makes place, and what type of vision of place it produces. I argue here that cultural resources lead us toward a melodramatic vision of place. I hope to develop this a little further at some point.
