The proposed project, Legible Cities, is a chapter of a book-length study entitled The New Metropolis: The Urban Spaces and Urban Subjects of Postmodernity. The project explores the intersection of urban space, textuality, and subjectivity from its emergence in the modern city through its culmination in the postmodern city. It analyzes how the forces of economic, social, and political power (which speak through the texts and images that dominate urban spaces) shape the subjectivities of the city’s inhabitants by urging them to take up particular social roles, and how urbanites respond by assuming or resisting those roles. The project examines both actual urban sites and a wide range of literary and visual representations of the 20th-century city.
