    Hello, Does anyone know interesting case-studies of culture-led regenerations? Particularly in Chinese countries?

    Thanks

    I think you may have a better success rate if you explained this. What is a culture led regeneration? It sounds like a cross between jargon and anthropology. Most if us are not anthropologists.

    Wang and Li also published in 2011 a (rather expensive, imho) BOOK by the same name:

    I timed out with the 60-minute limit; hence, this second post.

    "Urban regeneration" may be closely synonymous with "urban renewal" and "urban revival".

    "Regeneration" appears to be a favored word in publications outside the U.S.

    "Culture-led" can be academically defined as follows:
    "...to invest actively in mobilization, local information and promotion and to do so with the cooperation of local community organizations to attain some form of bonding with the local population, have the positive effects expected in terms of involvement in the community and act as a lever for local socio-economic development".
    (Source: http://www.researchgate.net/publicat...hu_in_Montreal)

    ______________________________________

    Sometimes the "culture-led" part works, sometimes it does not. In my previous post I cited comparative studies in China, and also a brand-new British publication on this. ( The latter is so new that at the time of this post, it appears to not yet be available for sale.)

    Another somewhat recent example of the efficacy of urban regeneration being culturally led:
    "Culture-led urban regeneration: the discursive politics of institutional change," by Monika de Frantz, (a draft of a book chapter in "Routledge Companion to Urban Generation"):
    http://www.academia.edu/3536720/Cult...utional_change

    A Google search yields quite a few "older" publications on this subject.

    , it looks like you've been doing "culture-led urban regeneration" all along.
