Urbanisation, urbanism and urbanity in an African city: home spaces and house cultures

Paul Jenkins

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    This book draws on and expands the findings of a quite unique international and inter-disciplinary research programme designed by the author, funded by the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation, and implemented 2009-2012. This studied the expansion of Sub-Saharan African cities empirically through an in-depth case study of the peri-urban areas of Maputo, capital of Mozambique. It included longitudinal physical and socio-economic survey work by the author from 1990, 2000 (and now 2010) as well as new ethnographic and documentary work. The book synthesises the findings, which challenges various common concepts applied to this emerging urban space and form.
