Abstract [en]

Cities are places of constant contradictions – on the one hand culturally rich and diverse places with interesting entanglements of social and spatial relations, on the other hand sites of inequality, segregation and conflict. There are obviously various and sometimes opposing understandings, narrations and representations of a city. From an urban history perspective, it is adequate to critically ask: how do historymaking and representations of a city’s past contribute to create cities and trajectories of urban development? To understand this, we need to pay attention to how urban phenomena are historicised, categorised, preserved and used in official history, and in urban planning. How cities are narrated and projected will influence what kind of city it is possible to imagine, what is understood as problematic, and consequently how and for whom cities are planned and developed. This correlation between history and future-making places questions of power at the centre of urban history and development. This anthology has its origin in the conference Creating the City. Identity, Memory and Participation, in Malmö, Sweden, 9-10 February 2017, arranged by the Institute for Studies in Malmö’s History (IMH) – a research institute affiliated with the Urban Studies department at Malmö University. The conference gathered scholars from various disciplines, such as history, anthropology, literature, geography, sociology, political science and media and communication; and practitioners as archive and museum professionals, urban planners, architects and artists.

Abstract [en]

While nation states have a disputed status in a globalised world, cities are often regarded as sovereign and global actors. Along with de-nationalising processes of increased privatisation, supranational governing and networks of transnational corporations, city administrations have developed new capabilities of orientation and governing in a global context (Sassen 2006). Inequality, poverty and segregation are some of the pressing issues that city administrations are grappling with – issues of local challenge with global relevance and repercussions, and vice versa. We wonder, if city administrations also address cultural issues that traditionally were of national concern, as fostering and narrating a sense of identity and belonging? If so, we think this shift needs to be further inquired, as we know that narrating and uses of history are not innocent practices. Rather, these are activities which consciously and unconsciously can push developments and futures in specific directions (Sandercock 2003). Further, narrating and history-writing have a spatial dimension and a performative force which may manifest in the physical environment, making changes, or sustaining status quo (De Certeau 1988, Hayden 1997 and Massey 2005). A critical engagement in the making and use of history in urban space is needed to disclose power relations and constructions of categories, such as gender identities (Scott 2011), and to problematize bias perspectives on cultural heritage and an “authorised heritage discourse” (Smith 2006). Processes of narrating the city in urban development and regeneration are often processes where not only urban history, but also urban futures, are negotiated in a very concrete and physical sense.

Abstract [en]

When approaching urban space and architecture as situations and structures influenced by glocal power relations, it becomes relevant to ask whose glocal connections are visualized and manifested, and whose futures and pasts are thereby connected and imagined. And, what role do cultural heritage institutions play in these processes? Do policies of cultural diversity deal with these issues? States adopt global and regional policies that emphasize cultural diversity, such as policies by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the European Union (EU).1 At the Swedish national level, the Historic Environment Act aims to “ensure present and future generations a diversity of cultural environments” (SFS 1988:950). However, what a diversity of cultural environments or cultural heritages might mean is not further defined. Nor do Stockholm’s municipal policies on culture (e.g., Stockholm City 2014; 2015) explain how to reach these goals in practice. With these questions, I approached the Stockholm City Museum for an interview. I was interested in whether (and if so, how) this context of glocal cities and the goals of cultural diversity had any bearing on the museum’s role in urban planning and development. I was, thus, in this instance, less focused on the collecting or archival side of the museum. Even if the museum has inclusive, participative projects in the city, where a diversity of narratives and voices are collected and documented (e.g., in books, exhibitions, and digital, participatory archives), these narratives are not obviously connected to or used in urban planning and development.

Abstract [sv]

Regeringen föreslår nio åtgärder för att hitta och utvisa papperslösa. Det kommer att slå hårt och främst gå ut över redan svaga och jagade människor. Vi uppmanar därför regeringen att ta tillbaka åtgärderna, skriver 43 forskare.

Abstract [sv]

Denna antologi är ett resultat av ett gemensamt arbete mellan forskare och tjänstemän för att diskutera möjligheterna och formerna för det praktiska arbetet kring hållbar stadsutveckling. År 2010 utlystes medel inom programmet Samordnad stadsutveckling - en förutsättning för hållbarhet, vilket har finansierat forskningsprojektet Omvandling av fragmenterade städer. En studie av att integrera hållbarhetsmål genom urbana rörelsestråk, med finansiering från FORMAS och RAÄ för att under tre år fördjupa sig i hållbar stadsutveckling och inte minst kring sociala utmaningar. I fokus för projektet är Malmö stads satsning på att knyta ihop de östra och västra delarna av Malmö genom förstärkandet av ett stråk. Antologin presenterar både konkreta resultat av dessa satsningar, och reflektioner kring de processer som initierades. http://www.mah.se/Forskning/omforskning/Organisation/Profiler/Forskningsprofil-Urbana-studier/Funktioner-och-tjanster/Skriftserie---MAPIUS/
