"Concept Histories of the Urban" Workshop Concludes Gender and the Global Slum Project

“Concept Histories of the Urban” was the final meeting of the CSSD working group Gender and the Global Slum. The two-day workshop was organized by by Anupama Rao and Casey Primel, and supported by CSSD, the Center for the Study of Science and Society, the Institute for Comparative Literature and Society, and the Heyman Center for the Humanities

Described by Rao as an experiment in interdisciplinary and inter-regional comparisons and connections, the workshop focused on relating work on urbanizing processes outside of the West with the historical experience of the United States, and the relationship between race, space and social segregation in particular.
