Don Mitchell

in conversation with Amador Fernández-Savater, moderated by Miguel Robles-Duran (Director of the MS Design & Urban Ecologies)
This Thursday, March 8, 6pm
The Kellen Auditorium, 66 Fifth Ave. NYC

Don Mitchell is Distinguished Professor of Geography at Syracuse University (USA).  He is the author of several books, including The Right to the City: Social Justice and the Fight for Public Space (2003) and (with Lynn Staeheli) The People's Property?: Power, Politics, and the Public (2008).  In 2002 he was a Fulbright visiting scholar in the Department of Sociology and Human Geography at the University of Oslo. He is the founder and director of the People's Geography Project (www.peoplesgeography.org).

Amador Fernández-Savater, is a participant in the Spanish May 15th movement, thinker, editor of "Aquarela Libros" and directs the cultural criticism magazine "Archipiélago", he is one of the most stimulating and provocative writers from and about the new movements and their new forms of politics. The conversation will approach questions around the relations between May 15th and Occupy movements, ways in which we can think their potentialities, and the way they redefine politics.

The Urban Tables, herald the September 2012 launch of the MS in Design & Urban Ecologies and the MA in Theories of Urban Practice, both programs will be focused on the envisioning, activism and theorization of radically different forms of urbanization, which move beyond the classical disciplinary boundaries into a trans-disciplinary redefinition of urban practice.
