Commenti disabilitati su Gender, Nature and the City

Gender, Nature and the City

My new essay published in Human Geography: A New Radical Journal, Vol.7, #3, 2014

Abstract: An ecologist and eco-feminist critique is likely to promote an innovative environmentalist urban policy. A new relation between humanity and nature implies a different aesthetic and architecture of the city. In the past, men were in control of the public sphere, thus they built their cities according to their attitudes and values. The traditional (masculine) behavior proved efficient since human species aimed at dominating a resilient nature. This approach is no longer suitable vis-à-vis the environmental crisis in an endangered environment. Women may still operate as privileged subjects of radical change provided they assume a leadership role in the environmentalist movement and propose a city envisaged according to a new way of thinking and feeling which fits into a reconsidered relationship between humanity and nature. 

Keywords: Urban Geography, Radical Urbanism, Environmentalism, Eco-feminism, City Architecture

Commenti disabilitati su Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting 2013

Association of American Geographers Annual Meeting 2013

I have presented a paper on 

“NEW CONSTITUENCIES FOR SOCIAL CHANGE”

Sub-classifications of the working class and capitalists are possible in respect to personal and group values, attitudes, and cultures. New classifications are partly built according to how people react to environmental issues and to other contemporary political challenges. In current local and grassroots politics, when dealing with environmental issues, these new classifications of social groups explain some unusual and surprising alliances with significant political consequences. The question is: is it possible and worth building a theoretical frame which includes a reshuffle of traditional class alliances? Is it likely that new social classes will form according to environmental values and interests? In my presentation, I will (a) propose a critical analysis of some analytical approaches; and (b) report on some European case studies and compare them with the U.S. situation “
