Mar 30 | The Public and Publics Conference

Thursday, March 30th, 9:00am—6:00pm
Keynote: Don Mitchell, Uppsala University, Sweden
Martin E. Segal Theatre

How have scholars, activists, and artists apprehended their position in public life and their belonging in a collective? How can we make sense of the designation of public, as opposed to private, spaces, both literal and figurative? Through a series of moderated panels and a keynote lecture by the geographer Don Mitchell, this interdisciplinary, day-long conference explores the concept of the public, and the plural publics, as an analytical construct of particular importance in both scholarship and political life.

Featuring: Mike Owen Benediktsson, Claire Bishop, Joshua Brown, Amy Chazkel, Provost Joy Connolly, Misty Crooks, Vladimir Gurewich, Talha Issevenler, Setha Low, Sally Engle Merry, Don Mitchell, Carmen Rial, Cecilia Salvi, Kendra Sullivan, Cory Tamler, Dana Taplin, Clarence Taylor, Craig Willse, Eduardo Zimmermann.

Cosponsored by Futures Initiative, Public Space Research Center, and the Center for Human Environments at the Graduate Center, CUNY.
