Food and the City explores the physical, social, and political relations between the production of food and urban settlements. Edited by Dorothée Imbert, its thirteen essays discuss the multiple scales and ideologies of productive landscapes--from market gardens in sixteenth-century Paris to polder planning near mid-twentieth century Amsterdam to opportunistic agriculture in today's Global South--and underscore the symbiotic connection between productive landscape and urban form across times and geographies.

Johannesburg,

There are many places in South Africa that are connected through their names with sites of conflict around the world. Beirut in Alexandra, Johannesburg is just one example and was named when hostel violence erupted in the area in the early 1990s and references the Lebanese civil war. Svea Josephy presents photographic diptychs and triptychs accompanied by texts, which explore what these connections mean to the communities that adopted these names.
