Spatially Differentiated, Temporally Variegated: The Study of Life Cycles for a Better Understanding of Suburbia in German City Regions

al. 2012 ); only the debate of the “Zwischenstadt” or ‘in-between city’ has found some recognition in the international community since then ( Keil/Addie 2015 ). Our approach is guided by three perspectives that have not been part of the standard repertoire of empirical suburban studies to date. Firstly, we pursue an analysis which is not predetermined by normative, and thus primarily negative, claims about suburbia. Secondly, besides spatial differentiation, this study focuses also on investigating the temporal variation in the development trajectory of

Suburbanisation and Suburbanisms

French urban regions. They demonstrate the spatial and temporal variety of current suburbanisation processes, indicating that this has a great deal to do with changes in lifestyles and ways of life and that it leads to the emergence of new forms of socio-spatial differentiation. In their introductory paper, Markus Hesse and Stefan Siedentop use a profound analysis of research literature about European suburbia and suburbanisation processes to unveil the transformations that both have undergone in the recent past. They discover a relatively wide range of suburban

Book Review: Glückler, Johannes; Suddaby, Roy; Lenz, Regina (2018): Knowledge and Institutions

questions are debated in twelve thematic chapters. Though the editors do not offer a definition of institutions themselves – the lack of a universal definition of institutions is a regularly raised concern – the authors of the first part of the book, “Challenges in Institutional Research”, introduce novel perspectives on the nature and characteristics of institutions. In the first chapters, Farrell , Coraiola/Suddaby/Foster and Diaz-Bone emphasise the informal, temporal and collective nature of institutions bearing essential points of reference for the study of

Vulnerability and Resilience in a Socio-Spatial Perspective
A Social-Scientific Approach

1 Introduction Perceiving and dealing with endangerments form part of the history of human society. People have always tried to protect themselves from the dangers they perceive. In relation to dealing with dangers, however, it is possible to identify spatial, social and temporal differences. Thus, for instance, neighbouring coastal regions can differ from one another in the way in which they deal with the threat of storm flooding at a particular time, even though they are exposed to very similar physical environments. In addition, in the same coastal region

Recent Challenges of the Ecosystems Services Approach from an Interdisciplinary Point of View

has not previously been pursued. Potentials for further research are identified from this specific reference. In the following, the main critiques from the perspective of social and environmental sciences will be discussed, considering the current limitations and future challenges to an improved representation of the spatio-temporal dynamics of socio-environmental systems ( Sections 3 and 4 ). First, however, the main features of the concept are presented ( Section 2 ). 2 The main features of the approach The underlying understanding of ecosystems is

Choreographies of entrepreneurship. How different formats of co-presence are combined to facilitate knowledge creation in seed accelerator programs

presentations followed by discussions. It also encompasses further settings such as keynote lectures, executive dinners, informal one-on-one discussions, joint site-seeing and so forth. Third, we argue that the affordances of co-presence cannot be grasped by observing only the situation itself. While previous studies on physical co-presence mostly focus on specific situations of co-presence, such a strategy might overlook important aspects. To explore the temporal interdependencies of different formats of co-presence, we pursue a procedural analysis of knowledge practices

Suburbanisation and Suburbanisms – Making Sense of Continental European Developments

areas and more urbanised forms of development that can be observed on the fringes; iii) maturity and temporal shifts instead of a fixed status that leaves suburbia in a sort of dead-end of urban development; and vi) peculiar forms of governance in suburban communities that not only focus on serving these communities’ interests but have the potential to shape the city region. A short outlook closes this paper, outlining some challenges for governing suburbia and related conclusions for future research. 2 European suburbanisation – still ongoing? Since the 1960s

How do cities and regions adapt to socio-economic crisis? Towards an institutionalist approach to urban and regional resilience

-organisation. Such systems of nature, humans, combined human-nature systems, or social-ecological systems can be perceived as being "interlinked in never-ending adaptive cycles of growth, accumulation, restructuring, and renewal" ( Holling 2001 : 392). Accumulation and transformation of resources alternates with phases creating opportunities for innovation. Understanding these cycles, their temporal and spatial scales, as well as the relevant frames of reference would help to "identify the points at which a system is capable of accepting positive change and the points where it is
