Chapter 9: Lecture: Populating the Landscape, Part IV: Contesting Urban Space

In this final "Populating" section, we explore how people interact spatially, move/diffuse across space, occupy urban space, and contest public space. Neighborhood associations, NIMBY, noise ordinances, and gated communities are among the topics, as well as how citizens demarcate and identify neighborhoods, and how people perceive distinctions among cities.
