Gender and the City: Perspectives from the Global South


The PhD students in Urban and Regional Development are pleased to invite you to the second season of DISTant Talks: The PhD Students Behind the Scenes.


This DISTant Talk will be a conversation between two researchers doing ground-breaking work in the field of gender and urban studies in the Global South. We seek to put a variety of perspectives in dialogue, questioning the gendered division between private (reproductive) vs public space (productive), the colonial disconnection between body and territory, and discussing the various strategies of resistance to reclaim urban public space for all.
