The Finnish Journal for Urban Studies published a theme issue on culture, design and planning, containing my first article on narrative planning, a short overview of the quite recent “narrative turn” in urban planning. The article was online for a moment, but has apparently been taken offline – the journal policy is to publish online after one year in paper. If you’re interested, contact me for a pdf.

The journal Spiegel der Letteren published a review of the book Tussen Beleving en Verbeelding, which examines the potential of literary sources for urban studies.
