QUESTIONING URBAN MODERNITY
Conference, May 18, 2012, University of Amsterdam

Keynote Speaker: Prof. Jennifer Robinson (Department of Geography, University College London)

It is widely accepted that our understanding of contemporary city life is based primarily on the tradition of western conceptualizations of modernity, dating back to the turn of the twentieth century. The ways in which Western thinkers have articulated city spaces in relation to urban subjectivities have formed the pillars upon which many new directions in urban studies have been built.

Forces at Play: Bodies, Power, and Spaces

Cyber bullying, the male gaze in cinema, SlutWalk in Toronto, the canonization of slave narratives, border rhetoric in the classroom – issues such as these take up the ways bodies, power, and spaces converge in a re-seeing and re-interpreting of historical and contemporary social complexities. Investigating this nexus in our discursive and material realities gives us the language for articulating the machinations of power and space that construct and dismantle singular and collective (im)material bodies.
