The Topography of Citizenship

October 11, 2018 @ 3:00 am - 4:30 pm

October 11 (Thursday) 3 pm, HSSB 4080 : Simon Goldhill (University of Cambridge), The Topography of Citizenship (co-sponsored by Critical Issues: Changing Faces of US Citizenship).

Citizenship is most often discussed as a question of legal status within a framework of rights and occasionally duties. Goldhill will be looking at the physical infrastructure of citizenship and how this is changing. How are cities constructed to create different sites of engagement for
citizenship and different forms of exclusion? What sort of cities do we wish to make to create civic life? The focus will be on the modern city, but with an instructive comparison with past models, physical and theoretical.
