Public Space and Urban Development are topics of interest to scholars from diverse fields including architecture, history, regional and community planning, anthropology, and communicative and literary discourse amongst others. Scholars who wish to understand the topic comparatively and across disciplines have looked at issues of development, infrastructure and the politics of urbanization. This research cluster at ISU includes faculty working in diverse cultural and global contexts, bringing together a variety of sub-disciplinary approaches from industrial housing in Eastern Europe to the problems of urban reconstruction in the Middle East to contemporary American cultural identity and environmental formation. As the group expands, the geographic coverage and methodological diversity will extend into other global regions and academic disciplines.
