Geographers and other scholars have long studied the intersections between urban form, function, and identity. Scholars have applied a diverse range of theoretical, methodological, and geographical perspectives to understanding how cities are not just places we live in but also live through. This presentation examines how cities simultaneously constitute palimpsests and crucibles of power, and as such, cities serve as the spatial nexus for competing political, cultural, and economic ideologies, especially related to national identity and belonging.
