METROPOLITAN STUDIES COLLOQUIUM SPRING 2012 SERIES

CONNECTING CONCRETE and ABSTRACT: CONVERSATIONS ON URBAN REVOLUTION – INSPIRED BY HENRI LEVEBRE

Colloquium #2: HISTORICIZING SPACE with Manu Goswami (Assoc. Prof of History, NYU) and Kristin Ross (Prof. of Comparative Literature, NYU)

Throughout spring 2012 the Institute for Public Knowledge and the Program in Metropolitan Studies at NYU are staging conversations between leading scholars of the state, space, and everyday life. Despite the transformations of the past 40 years, despite the difficulty of Lefebvre’s thought, these scholars demonstrate the renewed relevance of an analysis of urban revolution. The conversations will be wide-ranging and interdisciplinary, like Lefebvre’s oeuvre itself. They will be participatory and open-ended, and particularly oriented toward scholars and activists with only a passing familiarity with Lefebvre’s work but a passion for understanding and engaging in radical change.

THE MULTIPLE FUTURES OF WOMEN’S, GENDER, AND SEXUALITY STUDIES: THE SEQUEL

Panel Discussion with Kandice Chuh, Lisa Duggan, Ann Pellegrini, Sarita Echavez See, and Alexandra Vazquez


Back by popular demand, this evening forum addresses the dilemmas and possibilities of women’s and gender studies in the contemporary corporate university, with an eye to intellectual and institutional alliances with other disciplines devoted to the study of intersectionality, such as queer studies, ethnic studies, and postcolonial studies. What are the challenges currently facing the fields of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies? You can see a video of the conversation held last fall at Barnard Center for Research on Women here. For more information contact the Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality at 212-992-9540 or email csgs@nyu.edu
Co-sponsored by the NYU Center the Study of Gender and Sexuality; Department of Social & Cultural Analysis, and by the Barnard Center for Research on Women, and the Revolutionizing American Studies Initiative at the CUNY Graduate Center.
