This article identifies two main challenges to the future of urban geography. First, the challenge of thinking about urban geography as a more or less coherent discipline in an era of fragmented work histories, with many researchers employed on temporary contracts and moving between countries and institutions, each with its own cultures of work and expectation. Second, the challenge of moving beyond the writing of internalist histories of geography, and instead approaching urban geographic research as if urban knowledge matters, in all its diversity.
