Speaker information

Professor Ed Soja, Professor of Urban Planning, UCLA, Edward W. Soja is Distinguished Professor of Urban Planning at the School of Public Affairs, University of California Los Angeles, and for many years was Centennial Visiting Professor in the Cities Programme, London School of Economics. He is the author of Postmodern Geographies: The Reassertion of Space in Critical Theory, Thirdspace: Journeys to Los Angeles and Other Real-and-Imagined Places, and Postmetropolis: Critical Studies of Cities and Regions.

Introducing his new book, Seeking Spatial Justice, Edward Soja looks at how explicitly spatial strategies and a new critical spatial consciousness have infiltrated urban social movements and labor-community-university coalition building in Los Angeles. Particular attention will be given to the role of the university and especially departments of Urban Planning and Geography in promoting coalition building and struggles for transforming the unjust geographies in which we live.

This lecture is sponsored by the journal City: Analysis of Urban Trends,Culture, Theory, Policy, Action and UCL Urban Laboratory.
