Here I build on the analysis particularly inChapters 2and5to work through more specific pathways for urban studies as a field of scholarly enquiry. This chapter draws on the second half of Lawhon and Truelove (the first half is the foundation ofChapter 2). As before, in this chapter “we” refers to Yaffa and I. InChapter 2, we demonstrated that scholars making the southern urban critique base their arguments on three primary claims: (1) the south is empirically different, (2) the south has different intellectual and vernacular traditions and (3) postcolonial relations require us to examine the production of all knowledge. Articulating the foundations of the southern urban critique is useful for deepening our understanding of the urban studies we seek, but here we work to more specifically address the range of possible outcomes.
