Connections, edited by J. Hillier and J. Metzger. Presentation in Palermo (March 26, 2015) image
We are very proud to announce that the IX Young Academics conference in Palermo will host the presentation of the book "Connections. Exploring Contemporary Planning Theory and Practice with Patsy Healey" (Farnham: Ashgate).
The book is a festschrift for Patsy Healey, one of the most emblematic figures of contemporary planning. Its title, connections, "symbolises relationality, possibly the most outstanding element linking Patsy’s idea" (in the editors' words).
The presentation will be held on March 26, 2015, at 16:00, in the rectorate of the University of Palermo, the Palazzo Chiaramonte Steri (directions here).
The editors and Patsy Healey have already confirmed their participation to the book launch, as well as some of the authors: Francesco Lo Piccolo, Paul McNamara, Andre Sorensen, Leonie Sandercock, Wendy Steele, Zeinab Tag-Eldeen.

Thank to the contribution of the publisher, Ashgate, a small drink will be offered at the end of the presentation.

Looking forward to meeting you in Palermo!
