Organized by the Canadian Journal of Regional Science, this session explores the nature of ordinary life (life of family and production) within the city and its relationship to the state in general and city planning in particular. This is a broad area of scholarship that includes industry, households, immigration and social mix, housing, transportation, infrastructure provision, health, safety, environment, planning, and governance. The focus ultimately is on the quest for the good life. This session will be of particular interest to scholars interested in how the actions of individuals, groups, and the state come to shape the human condition within cities.
