In September—inspired, in part, by Jason King‘s post, [Fill in the Blank] Urbanism—I began my own explorations of various ‘urbanisms’  used in contemporary urban studies.

13 weeks and 26 posts later, the series is over.  Over the past three months I have taken a peek at a range of urban theories and phenomena from A to Z.  In writing this series, I’ve learned a lot more about some popular urbanisms (new urbanism, landscape urbanism); been able to focus on some of my favorites (adaptive urbanism and open-source urbanism); and perhaps even coined a new urbanism or two (yuppie urbanism and Zipcar urbanism).

Here is a recap of the topics I’ve covered, aka the ABCs of Urbanism:

Writing this series has also taught me that these 26 urbanisms cover but a small fraction of the diversity of urban constructs that exist. On Thursday I will post a list of 101 urbanisms that will highlight the broad scope of contemporary urban studies.

In the meantime, I  would love to know which of my ABC’s you found most interesting or compelling. Please leave me a comment highlighting  your favorite post.
