INTERACT goes downtown #2: Book Talk with Jillian Schwedler
News from May 11, 2023
Join us for the second event of our series INTERACT downtown:
Protesting Jordan - Geographies of Power and Dissent.
A conversation with Dr. Jillian Schwedler
8 June 2023 | 6-8pm
aquarium | Skalitzer Straße 6 | 10999 Berlin
We are delighted to welcome Dr. Jillian Schwedler (CUNY) for a talk and discussion on her new book: Protesting Jordan. Geographies of Power and Dissent.
The talk will be held in English and will be moderated by Dr. Jannis Julien Grimm and Myriam Ahmed.
About the book:
“Based on twenty-five years of field research, Protesting Jordan examines protests as they are situated in the built environment, bringing together considerations of networks, spatial imaginaries, space and place-making, and political geographies at local, national, regional, and global scales. Schwedler considers the impact of time and temporality in the lifecycles of individual movements. Through a mixed interpretive methodology, this book illuminates the geographies of power and dissent and the spatial practices of protest and repression, highlighting the political stakes of competing narratives about Jordan's past, present, and future.”
We would be honored to welcome you and are looking forward to an interesting talk and discussion
