Planning Forum Volume 8

MAY 2002

Written by planning students, faculty, and practitioners, the articles within Planning Forum Volume 8 reflect the full range of the planning continuum. Through lively prose and thought-provoking images, these pieces collectively examine the continuing influence of the urban past, assess the current state of cities and communities, and imagine various scenarios for our future world.

Planning Forum is an annual publication produced by graduate and doctoral students in the Department of Community and Regional Planning at The University of Texas at Austin. The journal publishes peer-reviewed scholarly articles as well as critical explorations in less-conventional formats. Planning Forum serves as a platform for emerging voices and new perspectives on the most pressing issues in the field. Scholars, practitioners, activists, and writers of all kinds are welcome to submit.
