  1. Featured Book: Spatial Regulation in New York City

    In Spatial Regulation in New York City, Themis Chronopoulos examines the applications of urban renewal, exclusionary zoning, anti-vagrancy laws, and order-maintenance policing. He argues that these initiatives deflected attention from the underlying causes of poverty and eroded civil rights while enabling real estate investment, high-end consumption, tourism, and corporate success.

General Interest

  1. Interested in the Space and Place Issues of Occupy Wall Street?

    Public spaces have long been the focus of urban social activity, but investigations of how public space works oftentimes adopt only one of several possible perspectives, which restricts the questions that can be asked and the answers that can be considered.

    In Common Ground? Anthony Orum and Zachary Neal explore how public space can be a facilitator of civil order, a site for power and resistance, and a stage for art, theater, and performance.
