  1. Hi – I wondered if you had a .pdf of your chapter; Cities Utopian, Dystopian, and Apocalyptic?

    I teach planning in Australia – and thought this would be great for my students (and me) to read

    kind regards

  2. Thanks, Paul, for your interest in my article – I’ll send you the chapter, would be interested to hear how your students interacted with it and how receptive they were for perspectives from literary studies. best – Lieven
