Announcing the 2017-2018 Cities Seminar theme “Entangled Cities”. In this seminar series, we will explore processes of entanglement in relation to the production of urban environments, with attention to mapping practices, networked infrastructures, and ecological politics.
This lecture will elaborate on Jane Jacobs and her less well-known visions on economic growth and forms of social and political organization that shape urban life.
Shirley Jordan and Christoph Lindner
This lecture will offer a comparative approach to the performative dynamics of celebrity in street art, with reference to Banksy and Alexandre Farto (the Portuguese street artist aka Vhils)
This talk is part of a larger project that explores the longue duree, the deep time, of urban mediation, and examines the aggregated histories of city-building, mud-molding and mark-making.
Christoph Lindner and Miriam Meissner
Cities and Cultures is an interdisciplinary book series addressing the interrelations between contemporary cities and the cultures they produce. The series takes a special interest in the impact of globalization on urban space and cultural production, but remains concerned with all forms of cultural expression and transformation associated with contemporary cities.
