Professor Brenner presents epistemological and methodological arguments for the study of globalized urbanization. The presentation draws from two current projects: A Thousand Leaves: Urban Theory and the Scale Question explores scalar assumptions within urban theory, while Generalized Urbanization: Theory, Method, Critique explores the challenges of studying the geohistory of capitalist urbanization and presents an interpretation of the contemporary global urban condition based on a notion of “generalized” or “extended” urbanization.
Neil Brenner is a scholar of critical urban and regional studies, comparative geopolitical economy, and sociospatial theory.
Co-sponsored by the Department of Sociology, the Department of Politics, the Center for Jewish Studies, and Colleges 9 & 10.For more information about Urban Studies events, contact Miriam Greenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
