Happy day @uspsheffield as our L3, L4 and PhD students graduate. These guys were my first incoming cohort when I started 3 and a half years ago with Urban Studies and Planning and it's quite emotional that I to am leaving the department next week myself. Feels like an end to era #emotional #urbanstudiesandplanning #urbanstudies

Iconic architecture is usually dated architecture. It’s a stamp, a mark, an identifier, a memory. It made an impact regardless if it was part of the fad. It defines it’s city’s character and tone.
When buildings like that get torn down. The entire fabric of the city is open for drastic change; good or bad. — @ifbldngscldtalk

पूजा PUJA... Puja boxes are often found in businesses and in many homes of Hindu families. Some are kept sparce and clean while others, like this one at a Jaipur vegetable shop, are left cluttered and smeared with devotional remnants. I sometimes think of them as windows into people's personalities. What can I tell about a person from this public display of the heart, this daily established diorama of devotion?

Puja is a prayer ritual performed by Hindus of devotional worship to one or more deities. .

I can’t believe how much #tulaneave is transforming. Pre-Katrina this was ground zero for prostitution, drugs, and crime and now it has the new VA and UMC hospitals, a new $10 million street renovation, restaurants opening up, and now this apartment complex. #gentrification #midcity #urbanstudies 🌆🏙

Last week for #whatisacity we looked at the OED definition, which states that city comes from the French citee, and while it might be true that English city comes from French, the word City’s origins are actually Latin, from the root Civitas. Other words stemming from Civitas are citizen, civic, civil, and civilization, which all revolve around this concept of units of society ranging from the small unit of the citizen to the expansive and expanding unit of civilization, though this combination isn’t all democracy and society for the good of man. More on that another day.

Question for the comments. What do you make of this list of words? What comes to mind? I would love just an off the top of your head answer just to see what people associate with these words.

Like last week, I’ve previously posted this Fitzgerald quote in the comment section of my #firstpost as #themetropolitanist . It also happens to be the second quote I used to open my #prospectus. I used two quotes at the beginning rather than one to immediately demonstrate that the usage of metropolis or choice of the word as my focus was not idiosyncratic of anomalous to one piece of literature. It wasn’t very #comparativeliterature of me to use two New York authors writing in English and I did consider using a different quote in Spanish, but I first wrote my prospectus for an audience of my peers in our professionalization seminar, and none of them could read Spanish. A translation would have taken up space in a document that ought to brief, so I went with two in English. I like putting two together for the momentum they build, so I kept the two quotes in my final draft. Having two quotes at the beginning of my prospectus also gave me a sense of excitement as I went into the writing process, serving as a tangible reminder of my body of literature, and I recommend keeping your favorite quotes somewhere visible for inspiration when writing.

For anyone wondering, this is the Parker I always keep inked in black and my current black bottle is LAMY. Next week and the following I’ll give you two of my sentences from my prospectus, but I’m beginning to plan for August. Is there anything you would like to see for these Monday posts? A theme of some kind?

The city really IS a stage. And the current dramas played are cynical to a level of misantrophy.
