E11 - Roundtable: Book Event - Zack Taylor’s “Shaping the Metropolis: Institutions and Urbanization in the United States”

Date: Jun 5 | Heure: 12:00pm to 01:00pm | Location: SWING 407

Chair/Président/Présidente : Martin Horak (University of Western Ontario)

Zack Taylor (Western University)

Abstract: Zack Taylor's new book, "Shaping the Metropolis: Institutions and Urbanization in the United States" (published by McGill-Queen's University Press) is a major new study of urban multilevel governance and physical urban development in Canada and the United States. Based on extraordinarily rich and detailed research in four Canadian and American metropolitan areas, Taylor's book develops an original theory of institutional performance to explain how and why Canadian and American patterns of urban governance have diverged. In this lunchtime event, Taylor will provide an introduction to the themes and arguments of his book; Taylor's brief presentation will be followed by an opportunity for audience Q&A and discussion. This panel will be of interest to scholars of urban politics, urban policy, Canadian politics, American politics, and historical political science.
