Event description

Description

Prof Routledge will draw from his new book to argue for the importance of a radical geographic perspective in enabling us to make sense of protests and social movements around the world.

Under conditions of increasing global economic inequalities, we are witnessing the flourishing of grassroots people’s movements fighting for improved livelihoods. Whether it’s the flurry of Occupy protests that peppered the planet a few years ago or the current wave of anti-austerity mobilizations, there is a consistent geographical logic to all forms of protest. In Space Invaders, Paul Routledge draws upon his extensive experiences over the past thirty years working with various forms of protest in Europe, Asia, and Latin America to provide an account of how a radical geographical imagination can inform our understanding of social processes.


Arrival from 5.45pm for a 6pm start.
