TH1.30.10 A Feminist Urban Theory for Our Time: Rethinking Social Reproduction, the Urban and its Constitutive Outside

In this panel we explore how feminist approaches to the urban, long focused on social reproduction, in the current juncture, need to engage with the social reproduction of the planet itself. Social reproduction is at work in many sites and scales beyond the urban—including bodily, territorial, land-based, regional, and ecological, to name but a few. Proceeding from a focus on social justice, panelists will discuss feminist approaches to social reproduction from a variety of socio-spatial ontologies and from a range of orientations—including but not limited to anti-racist, anti-colonial, trans, eco-justice and indigenous perspectives—in order to understand how social reproduction is configuring both the urban and its constitutive outside.

Moderator: Elsa Koleth, York University
