“Written by one of the world’s foremost experts, Uneven Innovation is a must-have book for everyone interested in the potential and the pitfalls of the smart cities narrative. It provides both a critical review of the main debates surrounding smart cities and thought-provoking insights into future research and policy agendas.”
~Ben Derudder, Ghent University
The city of the future, we are told, is the smart city, but is this true? In Uneven Innovation: The Work of Small Cities, Jennifer Clark reframes the smart city concept within the trajectory of uneven development of cities and regions, as well as the long history of technocratic solutions to urban policy challenges. Clark considers how the inevitable development of technology can be balanced with a deep understanding of the city to create a more equitable future. Check back tomorrow to read a guest post by Clark herself, and on Thursday for an exclusive interview. In the meantime, fill out the form below for a chance to win a copy of her book.
