Does an Urban Global South Endure: Experiments with Detachment

When: Monday, March 28, 2016, 3:00pm

Where: 701 S. Morgan, Stevenson Hall, Lower Level

This lecture will be given by AbdouMaliq Simone. Re-working notions of the “black city”, the presentation seeks to explore the terms through which an urban “Global South” might endure. Can we be indifferent to the absence of empirical verification in a move that enfolds intensely divergent urban situations so as to deploy the “South” –not as a negation, source of redemption, or distinct ontological condition—but as a way to examine forms of detachment from the ways in which planetary urbanization relates and connects places, bodies, and things?
