Suburban Planning and Politics
The majority of the world’s population live in officially defined urban areas and the majority of those people live in suburbs. Thus, the suburbs are the essential laboratories for understanding and solving any number of contemporary challenges and future interventions regarding urbanization. Australia has been regarded as the first suburban nation and is itself the ideal laboratory in which to understand the suburban question or the looming suburban regeneration challenge facing all nations. Applications are invited for a PhD Scholarship available in the Urban Planning Division of the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne in the field of suburban planning and politics broadly defined to work under the supervision of Prof. Nicholas Phelps.
