imagined destruction onto images of urban centres created a doubled view of the future cities as sites of development and destruction. The exhortations for ‘friendly bombs’ to enact slum clearance and enable urban redevelopment were part of a culture of anxiety about social decline and material decay in cities, in which airpower was simultaneously a symbol of a new technological modernity and the defining image of a future of permanent danger and vulnerability. The power of the air Intense speculation about the future was fuelled by rapid advances in technology in the

2005, when the plans were made public, it became clear that this new connection would be constructed close to a major urban redevelopment area, the “Islet” (het eilandje), including a huge bridge (De Lange Wapper) over this area, followed by a tunnel under the river Scheldt. Calling for alternative locations for road infrastructure and/or alternative forms of mobility, citizen movements actively contested the plans. Popularizing scientific knowledge and disseminating it among the wider public has been a main strategy in this endeavor. Through awareness

town or local landscape. In practice and research, placemaking is often linked to urban redevelopment. Although rural placemaking is less well researched, Lee and Blackford ( 2020 ) consider placemaking an important framework for individual and collective identity and well-being in rural areas. Well-being can be measured individually as ‘a contented

that productively excavates a repressed aspect of the Ottoman past against the constraints, as I illustrate, of dominant Kemalist modernity and Islamist homophobia, and in response to the destructive urban redevelopment spurred on by neoliberalism and globalisation. In addition, I henceforth argue that the recovery of historical homoeroticism does not constitute retrogressive complicity with outdated models of sexuality, but a micropolitical assemblage of Ottoman homoeroticism and contemporary queerness which qualifies earlier versions of same-sex desire while also

The ‘European city’ as a territorialised entity
Anke Schwarz

Throughout Germany, there is a host of recent examples of urban (re)development and reconstructive architecture, from the new ‘old towns’ of Dresden and Frankfurt am Main mimicking pre-World War II appearances to Berlin's much-debated recreation of an imperial palace. Inaugurated in December 2020 on the former site of the GDR parliamentary building, the newly-built Humboldt Forum – a museum complex behind a neo-Prussian facade – and some of the artefacts exhibited there are subject to criticism from activists and academics alike (e.g. Appadurai, 2017 ; Heller and

dedicated to the Duce. When Rome hosted the twelfth congress of the International Federation for Housing and Planning in September 1929, competing, and heavily debated, proposals for the city’s urban redevelopment went on display at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni as the centrepiece of the Mostra dei piani regolatori e delle abitazioni. The most important of these plans were united in the aim of settling the city’s new centre around Mussolini, but the meaning and direction of the centre of each proposal was cadenced by their pursuit of contrasting urban models. The Gruppo

inevitably meant that its building, especially with regard to its domestic housing stock, was especially chaotic, and ill-thought-through planning and redevelopment have remained an issue ever since. There are certainly no Mancunian crime writers that I am aware of who are silent on this feature of the city’s past, and their texts draw strong and clear connections between successive waves of urban redevelopment and crime; further, this failure of vision on the part of the planners includes the most recent (i.e. 1990s) ‘regeneration’ projects as well as the original slum

with associated risks. Approaches to heritage are often more celebratory than investigative, and national sites may act as a focal point for an aggrandizing patriotism. Public funding can come attached to a ‘particular vision of social harmony’, or an idealized image of the past, excluding those aspects that were violent or repressive. 6 Heritage may be part of urban redevelopment with the goal of attracting tourism rather than historical fidelity, and is a form of consumption and entertainment in the present. 7 As David Lowenthal pointed out, ‘the past is a

illustrates this point. A New Body , the ‘creative template’ for Yagan Square in central Perth, was widely held to have been useful in finding common ground between Perth's Aboriginal communities and the Western Australian government's urban redevelopment programme. 33 Recognising Noongar sovereignty over the site in question, as well as the implications of Yagan's murder for future reconciliation procedures, it proposed a story dramaturgy and its symbolic expression that recognised that so long as statehood remained
