Monday, March 13, 2017 at 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

6 E 16th St Room D1107

Assistant Professor of Enviromental Science, The New School

This lecture erects three conceptual pillars: institutions – history – space. “Institution” is understood broadly as any structure or mechanism of social order governing the behavior of individuals while also transcending individual lives and intention. In this regard, we may call “race” an institution. “History” is a dialogic, contested process of meaning-making. “Space”, which produces imaginaries like “environment” and “land”, is the knowledge and material action that institutions and history produces.

Presented by The New School for Social Research, Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, and the Schools of Public Engagement
