Abstract

A second question that panelists were asked to ponder fot this symposium was: What is the significance of urban geography today and tomorrow, and for the future production og geographic knowledge? Although it may seem trite, there is no denying the fact that the future producers of geographic knowledge exist in inchoate form in our classrooms. Our students are the future of the discipline as urban geographers and as citizens of an incresingly urbanized world. Our aims in developing a course about urban cultural circuits in a global world are: to help students to understand how different cities play different roles in the global economy, to encourage them to decenter the core and appreciate that peripheral cities provide important sites from which to view globalization and popular responses to it now and in the future, and to inspire them to produce new knowledge about our global urban system.
