Two new articles explore suburbanism in Africa

July 10th, 2014

The journal African Studies includes two new articles by researchers with the Global Suburbanism‘s project’s Africa cluster.

Chloe´ Buire’s “The Dream and the Ordinary: An Ethnographic Investigation of Suburbanisation in Luanda” looks at how the social order of Angola’s capital is reproduced as “individual dreams of home ownership meet top-down attempts to discipline
urban behaviours.”

New African Suburbanisation? Exploring the Growth of the Northern Corridor of eThekwini/KwaDakuza” by Alison Todes explores the dynamics of suburbanisation in two African municipalities that are in the same region but producing different kinds of growth through the influence of different actors, agencies and institutions.
