    Department of Community and Regional Planning University of New Mexico Jennifer Tucker is an Assistant Professor in the Community and Regional Planning Department at the University of New Mexico. Motivated by questions of urban justice in unequal cities, Jennif- er uses feminist ethnography to study urban work, collective ac- tion, and the politics of development. Her current project studies the regulation of the largest extralegal border economy on the continent, in the Tri-border region of South America where Par- aguay, Brazil, and Argentina meet. In addition to prior work as a community organizer and development practitioner in the United States, Paraguay, and Peru, she has a long history of communi- ty activism on issues of environmental, labor, and racial justice.

    Sara Hinkley is the Associate Director of the Institute for Re- search on Labor and Employment at the University of Califor- nia, Berkeley, and a Lecturer in UC Berkeley’s Department of City and Regional Planning. Sara’s research focuses on the politics of public finance, economic development, and the rela- tionship between inequality and public policy. She has written about the impact of the Great Recession on U.S. city budgets and services, the proliferation of complex financial instruments in the public sector, the gendered dynamics of austerity, and the political discourse of long-term unemployment and recession.

    PREFACE

    Sara Hinkley

    Jennifer Tucker

    We thank the creators and editors of the Conversations in Planning Theory and Prac- tice booklet (AESOP-YA collaboration) for shepherding this piece to publication. As early career academics, we are grateful for the opportunity to grapple with the stakes and po- tential of planning theory in our own work, and we hope this booklet is provocative for other stu- dents and researchers. This is an exciting time to engage in debates about the importance of theory in planning, in part by insisting on asking questions of where and how theory is made. We offer our interpretation of Ananya Roy’s work in the spirit of lively debate with which she has ap- proached the production of theory. Of course, we are forever grateful to Ananya Roy for her mentorship and her devotion to teaching, but especially for continually pushing the boundaries of planning theory. As early career academics, we are grateful for the opportunity to grapple with the stakes and potential of planning theory in our own work through our collaborative writing process during 2014 and 2015. We hope this booklet is provocative for other students and researchers.

    intRoDucing YA BookLet theme B

    exploring the abstractions in the Planning Debate

    The booklets published under Theme B present conversations with influential planners in theory to re- flect on the path of their career and discuss how they inspired and addressed the development of plan- ning theory. These booklets aim to provide an introduction to their theories and ideas: what and how they contributed to the field of planning; what and who influenced the development of these theories; and how this implicated/reflected on planning debate in theory and/or practice. Accordingly, it focuses on their contribution to academic literature. At the same time, it considers significant people and events that have influenced the evolution of the planners’ ideas and themes. Our effort has been to present the thoughts in their purest form and in a simple way, making it easy to follow for first-time readers, considering how difficult it is at times to transform ideas clearly clearly, specially in a different context and timeline.

    The process of development of Theme B and of deciding on the content unfolded various ways of looking at “planning theory.” Firstly, as the first booklet discussed, one way of understanding planning theory was to consider “procedural theory” as planning theory proper, as claimed by Andreas Faludi. Faludi’s procedural theory was highly criticized as far from its original discipline of “Urban Planning.” Secondly, there is at least a small group of scholars, who readily identify planning theory as litera- ture published in journals such as Planning Theory. Thirdly, the other way of understanding planning theory is “abstractions in the planning debate.” As also reflected in the above-mentioned description of the theme, we consider the third definition of planning theory for the purpose of theme B. Howev- er, readers can expect each booklet to be influenced by the particular scholars’ school of thought.

    The booklets are developed in two parts, Parts 1 and 2, each comprising 10,000 words. The YA au- thor(s) develop a draft for Part 1, and Part 2 consists of interviews with other scholars. However, both the parts are graphically compiled together and presented as a whole document in this publication. One of the challenges with booklets under theme B is that, in particular, these are dedicated to a scholar and NOT to a theory. The challenging task is to summarize the eminent scholars’ long academic life’s contribution in 10,000 words and to decide on the content in terms of “planning theory.” This is the third publication under theme B, with many more in the pipeline. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all the senior scholars of present and forthcoming booklets who have not only enthusiastically agreed to take part in the project but have also relentlessly supported our YA authors in spite of their very busy schedule.

    With thanks and regards, “Conversations in Planning” Booklet Team
