rogerkIn volume 14 of Novae Res Urbis, Roger Keil, FES professor and director of York University’s City Institute, discussed a seven year project on suburban development which has been granted a $2.5 million from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. A team of 44 researchers at 29 universities in 12 countries along with 16 community partners will take stock of worldwide suburban developments while analyzing their governance models, land use, infrastructure and suburban everyday life. The National Film Board of Canada will collaborate with the researchers to produce a series of documentaries about life in suburban high rises. Canadian Architecture magazine will also work with the team to build a travelling exhibition. Keil noted that the results of the study will be published in academic journals and possibly a series of books. FES professors, Ute Lehrer, Liette Gilbert and Stefan Kipfer are co-researchers in the initiative as well as Douglas Young (FES Alumnus).
