EP.01 – Global Forces Moving Urban Future

Fernando Lopez-Alves is a Professor of Sociology, and Global and International Studies at the University of California Santa Barbara.  Fernando will speak with us about his latest book: Populist Nationalism in Europe and the Americas and discuss polarisation phenomena in cities. Through the lens of the emerging nationalist and populist movements, Fernando will explain how urbanisation and sprawl are directly affecting the future of cities, globalisation, and politics in America and present his views on the challenges he sees emerging between increasingly polarised urban-rural societies.
