Anthropology Lecture Series - Conquistador Transportation and the Urban Commons: Resisting Gentrification in San Francisco

The Anthropology Lecture Series from the School of Language, Culture and Society presents "Conquistador Transportation and the Urban Commons: Resisting Gentrification in San Francisco" with guest lecture Dr. Manissa Maharawal from American University in Washington D.C. 

--

Maharawal will discuss the movement to resist gentrification in the San Francisco Bay Area through a focus on transportation infrastructure and public space as sites of contestation and cooptation. By paying attention to activist strategies and actions--from bus blockades and street protests to counter-mapping--I analyze how the movement to resist gentrification in San Francisco was enacted through a defense of the urban commons against the colonizing logics of gentrification and tech-driven capitalism.
