Metabolism of Global Cities
An insightful talk by Harriet Friedmann, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, University of Toronto, and presently Visiting Professor at LEST, University Aix Marseille. Harriet will cover the topic of urbanization on a global scale through the lens of history. Namely, we will learn how to see cities through the metaphor of metabolism: the conversion of energy from outside an organism into its life-sustaining processes.
