Quill Rebecca Kukla, our MA Geography alumna and Society of Women Geographers fellowship recipient, has published a new book City Living: How Urban Spaces and Urban Dwellers Make One Another. The book draws on her master’s thesis in geography and is forthcoming with Oxford University Press. This book is about how cities shape the people who live in them, while in turn, people shape the cities they live in. It explores how city living is distinctive, and how people build territories for themselves and make themselves at home in cities. Through a philosophical exploration of what it means to be a city dweller, and rich and detailed explorations of particular cities such as Berlin, Johannesburg, and Washington, DC, City Living shows how the cities we live in penetrate every dimension of our lives, from how we move to how we see, and conversely, how city dwellers creatively bend the cities they live in to their needs.
