  • This paper investigates quality of life in Italian cities using the hedonic approach. It analyses micro-level data for housing and labour markets to estimate compensating differentials for local amenities within four domains: weather, environment
  • , services and society. Large compensating differentials in housing markets are found, whereas the effects on wages are relatively small. Quality of life varies substantially across space and is generally better in large and medium-sized cities of the Centre

  • data services. Drawing on examples of ongoing pervasive computing projects, implicit computing procedures are explored in relation to the mediation of everyday urban life. Literatures from computing science and geographical theory are brought
  • into conversation in order to examine the consequences of a convergence between implicit pervasive technologies and the spaces of everyday life.

  • Public greenspace and life satisfaction in urban Australia
  • This paper examines the influence of public greenspace on the life satisfaction of residents of Australia’s capital cities. A positive relationship is found between the percentage of public greenspace in a resident’s local area and their self

  • Reimagining the food system, the economy, and urban life : new urban chicken-keepers in US cities
  • This article examines the food system, the economy, and urban life through new urban chicken-keepers in Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington State. It shows that they do it as an explicit effort to promote and enact alternative urban
  • imaginaries. In interviews, participants critique the industrial food system, urban economies and social life, and “think differently” about human-animal relations and productive animals in cities. Through these practices, they establish sustainable backyard
  • agro-ecosystems, build sociability, resist consumerism, and work simultaneously to improve the life and health of animals, humans, and the urban environment.
