Digitally Disrupted Space, by Anastasia Panori

Digitally Disrupted Space: Proximity and New Development Opportunities for Regions and Cities, by Anastasia Panori, has just been published by Elsevier Smart Cities Series.

The book puts forth the argument that digital space is a new form of space acting complementary to existing spatial structures and creating novel interactions between and/or within them. It explores three research questions: (a) What disruptions do digital technologies introduce to the concept of space, specifically in terms of space dynamics, space connectors, and space routines? (b) How does the digital space impact the twin transition? (c) What challenges does the digital space present for regional development, particularly in terms of productivity, resilience, and inclusion? Continue reading
