Martin Murray (professor of urban planning, Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning) has been named a CICS International Security & Development Fellow for 2012-2013. His research interests are in urban geography, and his research and writing is interdisciplinary, or trans-disciplinary. He has worked extensively within the framework of historical sociology with archival collections in London and Oxford (England); Pretoria, Cape Town, and Johannesburg (South Africa); Harare (Zimbabwe); and Maputo (Mozambique). His most recent books, Taming the Disorderly City: Spatial Politics in Johannesburg after Apartheid (Cornell, 2008) and City of Extremes: The Spatial Landscape of Johannesburg (Duke University Press, 2011) rely on a kind of “traveling ethnographic” approach—a methodology that anthropologists have perfected.
He will develop and teach a course for the International Studies Program entitled “Challenges for Transnational Urban Development in the 21st Century” in Spring 2013. He will deliver a public lecture and publish an article in a forthcoming issue of the II Journal on the same theme.
