This panel session will celebrate Peter Taylor’s seminal contributions to the development of relational approaches to cities in globalization, most of which were developed in the context of the Globalization and World Cities (GaWC) research network which he co-founded with Jon Beaverstock. Nods to the relational have become near-ubiquitous across the various different epistemological positions that investigate cities in globalization, ranging from quantitative world city network research to postcolonial approaches to cities in globalization. In this panel, we revisit to the basic question of what it means to conceptualize and do relational global urban research, and explore Peter's role in having shaped this reseach agenda.
