Reshaping Planning with Culture
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2008 - 215 pages
Planning is described as being increasingly sidelined by the impacts of neo-liberalism. At the same time, 'culture' is possessing a new creative weight and importance in sociological, economic and ecological terms. This book argues that, in light of this cultural turn, there is a need and opportunity to re-position planning and it proposes a new system of 'culturalisation'. Culturalisation is defined as the ethical, critical and reflexive integration of culture into planning. This original and practical system is put forward, showing how deeper, richer and more relevant culture can be utilised in planning, taking into account cultural theory and neo-modern and post-modern planning theory. This new theoretical approach is illustrated with global examples and two chapters detailing new vistas for a refurbished planning.
