Description générale

Dans le cadre de l'Atelier Amérique du Nord, Klaus Benesch, Professeur à LMU-Université de Munich, donnera une conférence sur le thème : "Rethinking the City: Identity, Heritage, Globalization”

Résumé :
This talk will discuss some core assumptions about the city, both in urban and cultural studies. Taking as my point of departure Mike Davis’claim that the city figures as both a major driving force of, and a potential solution to, contemporary ecological crisis, I look at how cities have to change in order to bring forth their ‘urban’ qualities and to rein in what Davis conceives of as the un- or anti-urban tendencies concomitant with globalization and unfettered capitalism.
