Re-imagining Distressed Cities

November 13, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Professor Steve Marr of the University of Malmo and Garth Myers of Trinity College will outline a number of long-term comparative urban studies projects that seek to place African-focused approaches to urban theory at the center of a rethinking of contemporary urban theory. One of these is an ongoing book project entitled, “Social Infrastructure and the Politics of Everyday Insecurity in Lagos and Detroit: Rethinking Urbanity in a Time of Crisis.” The second, “The Practice and Politics of Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation at the Urban Margins,” brings together researchers in Detroit, Malmö, Lilongwe, Lusaka, and Maputo to investigate how the urban poor deal with climate change under conditions of uneven state presence and capacity.
