This broadcast was framed by the transnational Summer School Spaces of Hope, organized by Claudia Mock and her colleagues at the Collaborative Research Centre Re-figuration of Spaces at the Technical University of Berlin.
Cindi Katz is the executive officer of the Ph.D. Program in Earth and Environmental Studies at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her research focuses, among other things, on social reproduction and production of space place and nature, everyday life and the environment, children’s geographies, the privatization of the public environments, the intertwining of memory and history in the geographical imagination and geographically dispersed but interconnected sites of global capitalism. If you want to know more about her critical methodology of “countertopography” watch her keynote at the HKW which can be found here.
