Distinguished International Visiting Fellow Lecture

Cities such as Los Angeles have long been structured through technologies of spatial exclusion and frontiers of urban displacement.  Yet, social movements on the current frontlines of urban struggle insist that new types of violence are afoot.  Rejecting the standard vocabularies of urban studies, such as gentrification and neoliberalism, they call attention to processes of racial banishment.  In this talk, Professor Roy will detail key elements of racial banishment and indicate how urban transformation is articulated with necropolitics, including mass incarceration.  Thinking from Los Angeles, she will argue that what is at stake is not only a more robust analysis of urban transformations but also attention to the various forms of urban politics that are challenging racial capitalism.
