主讲内容:

New forms of urbanization are unfolding around the world that challenge inherited conceptions of the urban as a fixed, bounded and universally generalizable settlement type. Meanwhile, towards the end of the last century, alongside the deepening and accelerating processes at multi-scalar level, massive developments in IT, telecommunications and modern transportation dramatically promoted a revolution in urban-regional economies. Against this background, I try to answer what the urban competitiveness is and how to explore the urban competitiveness in the era of contemporary globalization and digitalization? This lecture is organized as follows. First, I make a comparison between the city and the urban in the context of China’s urbanization, and provide a new epistemology of “the urban” for urban studies and urban planning in China. Second, I interpret the urban competitiveness from an economic geography perspective and point to the key factors associated with the urban competitiveness in China. Third, this lecture summarizes the developmental dynamics of China’s critical cities.
