January has been a bit of a lazy month for the YA blog. After a great 2014, the team was in the need of some time before re-starting for an even better 2015. In the meanwhile, we’ve been working for expanding the team of contributors and we’ll give news very soon.
And, with a bit of delay, this post gives the highlights of the past year, with some of the most read posts, from all our contributors.
Starting with our regular contributors:
- Fabian Wenner and Irina Paraschivoiu have delivered the two most read posts of the year: one reflection on the transformations of former socialist cities and the challenges of city-region governance in Bucharest.
- Avgi Vassi invited Tiago Patatas and Rob Bos for a post on the future of mobility and accessibility instruments.
- Carolina Collaro contributed with several events reports: among them, one from the 2nd World symposium on sustainabla development at universities.
- Simone Tulumello delivered this post about ‘Measuring’ the impact of Social Sciences and Humanities (which was after re-blogged by the Canadian Federation for SSH).
Among the past regular contributors:
- 2014 was also the year in which Sir Peter Hall passed away: Basak Demires, who has worked closely with him, shared her experience in an inspiring post.
- Thomas Skuzinski delivered this brilliant post about the role of planners in, and for, political participation.
Finally, the guest contributors:
- Basak Tanulku with a precious guide on how to prepare the Viva;
- Andrew Hoolachan with a reflection on the demolitions in Glasgow for the 2014 Commonwealth Games;
- Davide Leone with an event report which is a reflection on the very reasons we make research for.
