Hybrid gentrification

Charlotte Lemanski on the refinement of urban theory

Hybrid gentrification

Charlotte Lemanski

Hybrid gentrification

Dr Charlotte Lemanski’s article on Hybrid gentrification is to be published in Urban Studies, and is currently  featured on the journal’s blog, at http://urbanstudiesjnl.blogspot.co.uk/

Based on research undertaken in South Africa, the blog entry is a short, accessible and personalised summary of Charlotte’s article, which develops the concept and methodological approach of ‘hybrid gentrification’ (where ‘gentrification’ might be replaced by any urban theory historically entrenched in western experience) to demonstrate how non-northern urban experiences can and should create and refine urban theory.

The hybrid gentrification concept and method serves as a model for expanding urban studies beyond its northern bias, as well as for theorising across northern and southern cities more broadly.
