The full title of this installment is "AREA Chicago #9 Peripheral Vision – A Local Reader Inside and Outside Chicago". It takes a broad multifaceted look at how Chicago relates to and relies on other places considered peripheral to the city. Cities are much more than centers with hubs. They are constant flows of people, energy, food, bodies, labor, and more. Paying too much attention to a center means not seeing the interesting and vital things that are happening away from it.

This paper, like each issue of AREA, is about Chicago, but is useful well beyond the city for helping us all think about how we relate to and act in the place we live.

The paper is broken into three sections: Section I – AREA Calumet, Section II – Circulation: Movement Between Center and Periphery, and Section III – Views from the Periphery.
