History of the Present

Cities in Transition

Cities today confront unprecedented social, political, and environmental challenges. “History of the Present” features in-depth articles, written by leading journalists and public scholars, on cities undergoing profound transition.

The series has been supported with seed grants from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts and from Elise Jaffe + Jeffrey Brown, and is now supported by contributions from our community of readers.
