GWST 5109: Theorizing the Urban

This seminar engages in debates in contemporary neoliberal urbanism with a particular focus on the Global South. With more than half of the world’s population now residing in cities, the assemblages of the social laboratory are firmly grounded in the urban. The seminar explores the ongoing reconfigurations in the social laboratory: the production of gendered, raced, classed subjectivities, housing, land, networks, livelihoods, power, violence and social movements in the everyday life of diverse urban configurations.  
Prof. Martina Rieker
Sundays, 5:00 - 7:30 pm
