Bibliography: Urban Studies

Team: Edward Hatfield (Lead), Leslie M. Harris, Catherine Michna
Version: July 2011

This bibliography will collect primary and secondary materials that examine life in New Orleans from an urban perspective. In order to make the bibliography most helpful to visitors, we have limited the entries herein to works that employ “urbanism” as a category of analysis; publications that are merely set in or deal with New Orleans have been omitted. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to urban development, cultural production that address questions of the urban environment, public culture, municipal politics and government, the built environment, architectural history, public space and suburbanization. Because they are too numerous to cover comprehensively, newspaper and magazine articles will not be included. In addition, we have also added sub-categories, which collect works that explore topics that we expect may be of particular interest to many visitors.

Sub-categories are currently available for the following topics:
