Citizen’s Right to the Digital City: Urban Interfaces, Activism, and Placemaking
Professor Marcus Foth, is coediting a new book entitled ‘Citizen’s right to the digital city: Urban interfaces, activism, and placemaking’.
Edited by thought leaders of the fields of urban informatics and urban interaction design, the book brings together case studies and examples from around the world to discuss the role that urban Interfaces, citizen action, and city making play in the quest to create and maintain not only secure and resilient, but productive, sustainable, and liveable urban environments. The book debates the impact of these trends on theory, policy, and practice. The chapters in the book are sourced from blind peer reviewed contributions by leading researchers working at the intersection of the social/cultural, technical/digital, and physical/spatial domains of urbanism scholarship. The book appeals not only to research colleagues and students, but also to a vast number of practitioners in the private and public sector interested in accessible accounts that clearly and rigorously analyse the affordances and possibilities of urban interfaces, mobile technology, and locationbased services to engage people towards open, smart and participatory urban environments. The book is scheduled for release in 2016.
