Session Title
Cosmopolitics
Session Summary Witnesses of a veritable paradigm change, we must reformulate the cosmologies upon which the contemporary tools of urbanism have been constructed. Arcane technologies and rituals of the urban were often based on mythological references. Pressing ecological concerns and the scale of technological development call for the imminent city to repoliticize both nature and technology, and to construct new urban cosmopolitics.
