FROM CRITICAL URBAN THEORY TO THE RIGHT TO THE CITY
Tuesday 6th October
6.30pm
London, UK

Peter Marcuse argues that the ultimate purpose of critical urban theory is to implement the demand for a Right to the City. Drawing on the work and witness of his father Herbert Marcuse, and on his own work and experience as a lawyer, planner and urban scholar and activist, he focuses on the differences between the crisis of 1968, which produced the demand for the Right to the City, and the crisis we confront today. He asks: ‘Is another world not only possible, but realistically attainable?’

His most recent publication is ‘Cities for People, Not for Profit’, jointly edited with Neil Brenner and Margit Mayer, a special issue of the journal City: analysis of urban trends, culture, theory, policy (13.2-3, June-September, 2009).
