Abstract

This article jointly considers elite and non-elite narratives, through an analysis of discourses of modernity as enacted in and through these statist urban projects. It explores how notions of ‘modernity’ are performed and enacted through the exclusionary practices of elites and non-elites alike. Taking the case of Kazakhstan's new capital city, Astana, it examines how the state-led urban modernisation agenda simultaneously draws upon and re-inscribes a set of interlocking popular geographic imaginaries (Soviet/modern, urban/rural, north/south), and demonstrate how ordinary citizens are not just passive spectators, but active participants in the political drama of state- and city-building
