Dorina Pojani presenting on her experience as book editor at Massey University

Join Dorina at Massey University as she reflects on her role as Editor of the recently published book Alternative Planning History and Theory. This book explains that current planning theory teaching practice in the Anglosphere presents a normative perspective that mostly accounts for the experience of white, Anglo, Christian, middle class, middle aged, heterosexual, able-bodied, men.

Dorina will explain the unique approach of this book. Written from the perspective of groups that have been historically marginalized or neglected in planning theory, it provides an alternative planning history and theory, with timelines, for each of the following groups: women, the poor, LGBTQ+ communities, people with disabilities, older adults, children, religious minorities, people of color, migrants, Indigenous people, and colonized peoples (in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Anglophone Africa).
