Abstract

International lecturers and academics address issues centred on the fundamental role played by the urban centres and port poles of Adriatic Puglia and the Tyrrhenian Sea in ancient and modern history for the development of Mediterranean civilization.The common denominator of the themes tackled is therefore the urban historical landscape, outlined through the gaze of the most varied disciplines - from the history of art, architecture and the city to urban historical iconography and cartography, from archaeology to economic history, to that of building materials and their technological and chromatic use - drawing on many, and in more than one case unpublished, documentary and iconographic sources.A contribution of ideas in the common objective of knowledge and enhancement of the landscape, urban and architectural environment of those historic centers within the current debate on the fate of cultural heritage in Italy. For the territory of Gallipoli and Salento, a valuable tool for the identification of the most appropriate strategies for the exploitation of its recognized beauty, not separated from traditional hospitality.

Abstract

A town is not simply a collection of streets and houses with a certain number of inhabitants, but is, above all, the profound expression of the culture of the people who live in it. This book aims to provide students and teachers with analytical methods and ways of considering a town, so that they may make the place where they live their own. Pondicherry has been chosen as an example for this analysis. Various chapters deal with the site of Pondicherry, its morphology and plan, its urban landscape and landmarks, its architecture (with emphasis on the Tamil house) and its socio-cultural aspects. The book provides several drawings, maps, lists, elevations and photographs for a better reading of the town. It is available in three versions: French, English and Tamil.

Abstract

O presente livro surge como resultado do I Encontro Historical Soundscapes realizado em 2017 na Universidade de Évora e do arranque do Projeto PASEV: Patrimonialização da Paisagem Sonora em Évora (1540-1910), em 2019. Pretende constituir-se por isso como um contributo no que se refere à reflexão e disponibilização de estudos no quadro da Paisagem Sonora (Soundscapes, conceito criado por Raymond Murray Schafer em 1970), enquanto abordagem que tem vindo a ganhar cada vez mais expressão na musicologia internacional e que permite entender a música realizada numa determinada área a partir de uma perspetiva contextual abrangente, como é o caso da escala urbana. Esta abordagem permite reconstruir contextos, circuitos, trânsitos e cartografar a presença da música e dos músicos, entendendo a música como uma atividade social, política e económica e não meramente artística. Os desafios neste domínio vasto prendem-se com a abertura à interdisciplinaridade de abordagens, à diversidade de fontes, à capacidade de “imaginar” soluções para a reconstituição de um património sonoro efémero ou perdido no tempo. O livro não se centra em exclusivo na realidade histórica de Évora, embora se apresentem estudos significativos sobre a música sacra que refletem a vitalidade da investigação que continua a aprofundar o vasto património musical associado à Catedral eborense e à realidade monástico-conventual da cidade. O processo de valorização do Património musical desta cidade no século XX e através da ação do município, é também aqui abordado. Em relação a outras realidades urbanas, um dos grandes desafios continua a ser o estudo de procissões na perspetiva da Paisagem Sonora, sendo aqui abordados os casos de Castelo Branco e Valência. Apresentam-se também estudos que incidem sobre três cidades com abordagens distintas, Vila Viçosa a partir de uma única fonte documental (textos de J. J. R. Espanca), Braga a partir da análise de uma diversidade de fontes e de espaços na cidade (periódicos, cartazes, relatos e quanto a espaços, igrejas, cafés, passeio público ou teatros) e Sevilha abordando igualmente uma diversidade de fontes e espaços num período delimitado aos sete anos de domínio de Primo de Rivera. O protocolo e festividades da Corte são abordadas em épocas e convenções distintas nos séculos XVI e XVIII. São também apresentados modelos de estudo de acordo com espaços ou instituições, como é o caso da Universidade de Sevilha ou do Palácio da Condessa de Barcelona. Dois estudos centram-se ainda nos agentes, i.e. os músicos, nas cidades de Portalegre e Nápoles. Finalmente, um trabalho singular sobre o ambiente sonoro associado ao teatro de marionetas dos bonecos de Santo Aleixo. A proposta do presente livro passa pela abertura a abordagens diversas que exploram elementos distintos e contribuem para a configuração de uma dada paisagem sonora, para estabelecer a sua identidade e singularidade. Apostando em leituras distintas de cariz multidisciplinar, fica aberto o caminho para trabalhos futuros, complementares, visando a salvaguarda da história, da memória e do património musicais.

Abstract

Luxury and Rubble is the tale of two cities in Ho Chi Minh City. It is the story of two planned, mixed-use residential and commercial developments that are changing the face of Vietnam’s largest city. Since the early 1990s, such developments have been steadily reorganizing urban landscapes across the country. For many Vietnamese, they are a symbol of the country’s emergence into global modernity and of post-socialist economic reforms. However, they are also sites of great contestation, sparking land disputes and controversies over how to compensate evicted residents. In this penetrating ethnography, Erik Harms vividly portrays the human costs of urban reorganization as he explores the complex and sometimes contradictory experiences of individuals grappling with the forces of privatization in a socialist country.

Abstract

Global population growth is urban growth and, therefore, most of the water-related challenges and solutions reside in cities. Unless water management and water governance processes are significantly improved within the next decade or so, cities are likely to face serious and prolonged water insecurity, urban floods, and/or heat stress, which may result in social instability and, ultimately, massive migration. Aging water infrastructure, one of the most expensive infrastructures in cities, is a relevant challenge in order to address Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6: clean water and sanitation, SDG 11: sustainable cities and communities, and SDG 13: climate action. The choice of good governance arrangements has important consequences for economic performance, for the well-being of citizens, and for the quality of life in urban areas. The better governance arrangements work in coordinating policies across jurisdictions and policy fields, the better the outcomes. Rapidly-changing global conditions will make future water governance more complex than ever before in human history, and expectations are that water governance and water management will change more during the next 20 years compared to the past 100 years. In this Special Issue of Water, the focus will be on practical concepts and tools for water management and water governance, with a focus on cities.
