For a Political Economy of Space and Place

by Adam David Morton on February 17, 2016

Under capitalism, how does the state organise space in our everyday lives through the streets we walk, the monuments we visit, and the places where we meet?

This lecture will address such issues as part of the Insights 2016: Lecture Series, organised by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and Sydney Ideas at the University of Sydney.

The Insights Series is the University of Sydney’s approach to highlighting the work of newly-promoted or appointed Professors. Often simply called an “Inaugural Lecture”, it is an opportunity to inform colleagues in the University and the general public about one’s research career so far and update colleagues on current and future research directions.

The details for my inaugural lecture, or Insights Lecture, are listed below.
