Towards a New Urban Practice: The Urban Fellows Programme 2016-2022


In 2022, the Urban Fellows Programme at the Indian Institute for Human Settlements, Bengaluru, completed six years with 227 graduates. Collectively written by Faculty and staff at IIHS, Towards a New Urban Practice marks this moment as a point of Reflection. Using the programme as an archive, the book reflects on questions of contemporary urban knowledge, interdisciplinary and southern urban pedagogy, what it means to teach about and from practice, and how our thinking on pedagogy needs to be equally rooted in questions of institutional design, operations, admissions, and the political economy of employment for new urban practitioners.
