Imagining Global Amsterdambrings together a broad range of essays that explore the image of Amsterdam as articulated in film, literature, art, and urban discourse, within the context of globalization and its impact on urban culture. Subjects include Amsterdam as a lieu de mémoireof early-modern global capitalism and the place of this memory in the present global order; (inter)national articulations of Amsterdam as a multicultural and highly permissive "global village" as depicted in literature and the visual arts; and globalization's impact on Amsterdam's city branding and cultural heritage industry. Written by an interdisciplinary team of scholars, this collection forms a multifaceted inquiry into the relationship between Amsterdam, globalization and the urban imagination.
