            In discussions on urbanism, the need to involve new actors has been a major theme of recent debate. In this field, throughout Europe, various ways of allowing citizens to take a more direct part in planning is stressed. It is also important to look at the role or lack of the role... played by particular research fields. Architecture plays a major role in city planning. While Archaeology has become increasingly involved in field projects in urban environments, the discipline seldom plays an important role in City Planning. In several countries and particular cities this situation has been questioned during the last decades. In November 2018, a group of scholars from different countries met in Mersin, Turkey, to discuss about the relationship between Architecture, Archaeology and contemporary City Planning. This book collects the final papers from that meeting. The workshop has been realized in collaboration between the University of Mersin the Architecture Department of the Florence University, Italy, the Department of Historical Studies, University of Gothenburg, Sweden Workshop organizing committee: Sinan Burat, Esra Sahin Burat, Seda Sakar, Giorgio Verdiani, Per Cornell, Zuleyha Sara Belge, Burak Belge

There was a famous one about judging, caring, omnipotence, that this animal did, but it never lead to ...violence. It lead to some sort of action around a 'fiction'....to the moon, curing cancer, to mars.... did they need a Patriarch just hanging out above them?

That last one is a stickler. It could end soon and the more they placed algorithms in the hands of social media the faster it will come. Now the algorithms might be doing the 'divide and conqueror'.
