This chapter offers a series of powerful provocations of how ‘global urbanism’ might be pursued as a political and theoretical project. It offers a compelling case for how critical urban work might contribute to local activist struggles both by ‘doing the homework’ that those struggles need and learning from struggles elsewhere. The chapter departs from a commitment to the feminist, black, and postcolonial traditions, and raises vital questions around the extent to which urbanists have brought difference to their work in meaningful ways, including in relation to – and perhaps particularly in relation to – global urbanism. The theory culture of urban studies remains precisely what it was a while ago, when Doreen and Cindi and others were advancing their critiques.
