Sense and sustainability: The case of the Slow City movement

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


In this article I draw on recent anthropological literature on the senses to propose a novel approach to sustainable local development. I suggest that attention to how the senses are engaged in both discourses concerning and corporeal experiences of sustainable urban development, can produced insights into how these processes operate. In developing the discussion I draw from examples from ethnographic research in British member towns of the Citta`slow (Slow City) movement.
