Grey Space and Displaceability

WHEN: Tuesday, November 14th, 12:15-1:30

WHERE: MIT Building 9, Room 9-255 (City Arena)

Please join the DRAN for our upcoming talk, “Grey Space & Displaceability: New Foundations of Contemporary Urban Regimes” with Professor Oren Yiftachel of Ben-Gurion University, Bersheeba.

The lecture will offer a discussion about the changing nature of urban regimes, using a 'southeastern' perspective. It will focus on the growing prevalence of 'gray spacing' and the impact of 'displaceability' to the making of urban citizenship. The lecture will draw on research from Israel/Palestine used comparatively with other global locations.

A light lunch will be served.
