La observación participante y la deriva: dos técnicas móviles para el análisis de la ciudad contemporánea. El caso de Barcelona
Pellicer,Isabel; Vivas-Elias,Pep; Rojas,Jesús;
EURE (Santiago) , 2013, DOI: 10.4067/S0250-71612013000100005
Abstract: we are territoriants, radicants, transumers, travelers in the global city. with these figures we give shape and meaning to the contemporary urban space. such space and the practices that give rise to it are related to the constant movements, flows and interconnections of people, things, data, ideas and goods presently under way, thus befing directly linked to the paradigm of mobility and the radicant logic. in this context, it is necessary to use mobile methodology, the best suited to the contemporary cities and their inhabitants. this paper deals with this issue. mobile methodology is defined and its practices are shown through two specific mobile techniques: participant observation and drift. the paper also highlights how this methodology is especially usefulfor studying the current urban context and the practices that take place there, as it shares the constitutive logic of the phenomena studied.
O que está acontecendo com a pesquisa sobre cidades mundiais?
King, Anthony D.;
Estudos Históricos (Rio de Janeiro) , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-21862010000200002
Abstract: research on world cities, dominating the 1990s, was more about cities, less about the world. reversing that order, this paper asks to what extent the "world city paradigm" still has validity today. rather than focusing on economic and business-related criteria in examining and assessing world city development (as is frequently the norm), the paper looks particularly at historical and cultural factors. using the example of london, it shows how historical postcolonial connections with india continue to influence the everyday fortune of the contemporary city.
Las funciones comando de Madrid en la economía global: una aproximación a través del proceso de atracción de capital extranjero
Sánchez Moral,Simón; Calatrava,Ascensión; Melero Guilló,Andrés y Ana;
EURE (Santiago) , 2008, DOI: 10.4067/S0250-71612008000100002
Abstract: the dynamism of the metropolis of madrid and its intense spatial restructuring has been explained by the processes of globalization and technological change. this has generated a discussion about its condition as a global city. this article initially presents the limits of the concept as apparent in the international debate, then immerses itself in the issue from the perspective of the attraction of foreign capital. the analysis of diverse statistical sources confirms the high sectoral concentration of so-called command functions (financial services and advanced firm services). this concentration in the city centre, in spite of competition from new location types in the surrounding metropolitan area (business parks, financial cities), are aspects that have to be incorporated into any reflection on the balanced and sustainable growth of madrid and other metrópoli in the current phase of capitalist development
Transportul maritim global, element cheie n dezvoltarea ora elor-port moderne
Drago? Horia Buhociu
Urbanism. Arhitectura. Constructii , 2012,
Abstract: The strong demand for Asian goods, especially tea, silk and China porcelain, along with need to avoid to Arab controlled merchant trails, pushed the Europeans to seek for direct maritime routes to Asia. They sailed around the world to establish key market spots, called entrep ts, which evolved to become modern port cities. Unlike the common freight or post ships, the passenger ships were focused on people and at the beginning of the 20th century passenger confort prevailed for the first time over speed. Maritime companies evolved in founding the modern cruise industry in the 1960s, fundamentally affecting port cities by modifications on their waterfronts.
The City in Cinema: A Global Perspective  [PDF]
David J. Edelman
Current Urban Studies (CUS) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/cus.2016.42010
Abstract: Commercial cinema is a worldwide form of entertainment enjoyed by most of the planet’s population and variety of cultures. Films are produced on six continents and marketed successfully internationally. However, cinema is more than a medium for telling stories of adventure, intrigue, comedy and romance. As most of the world’s population now lives in cities, many films take place in urban settings, where a large number of those cities’ physical and social problems are exposed. Commercial film, then, plays a useful role in determining how such issues can be confronted through the lenses of their many countries and cultures. That is, solutions to urban problems must be culturally sensitive. Moreover, as cities dominate life on planet Earth in the 21st century far beyond what their population alone would warrant, they are at the core of some of the most influential films of the last century. This paper, then, is significant in that it looks at some of these urban focused films and identifies the universal themes they consider.

Fix, Mariana;
Caderno CRH , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-49792009000100003
Abstract: this paper analyzes the conflicts and articulations behind the transformation of an old swampish area, the meadows of the pinheiros river, in one of the most valued regions of s?o paulo and its globalized face. the text discusses particularly the connections made in the last decades between the global financialization of the economy and the specific arrangements that take place in s?o paulo; among supposedly advanced mechanisms - such as urban operations, cepacs and real estate investment funds - and typical forms of primitive accumulation, in which strength, frauds, oppression and pillage are recurrently exhibited; between the "city proper" of the elites and the so-called clandestine city, that occupies stream edges, hillsides, margins of dams. i investigate three icons of that urban landscape: a cable-supported bridge, synthesis of the "new city" scenery; a gigantic walled development, that mixes residential, luxury trade and office buildings; and a business compound with office and hotel towers, interlinked by an underground shopping center.
