Critical Planning, 15th Anniversary Volume

The Critical Planning journal began with a small group of students sharing their own texts and commissioning work from others. It emerged in a period of transition: the Planning Department separated from the Architecture Department and joined the newly structured School of Public Policy and Social Research (later renamed the School of Public Affairs), a process instigated by the Chancellor’s Professional Schools Restructuring Initiative. Critical Planning remains a forum for debating key issues, concerns, and “questioning the ways in which urban planning is conceptualized and practiced” (Volume 4, editorial). Instead of debating and publishing our own work, we now draw from an ever-growing international pool of submissions from researchers of cities and regions working in a variety of disciplines.
