Neil Brenner Talk Urges Scholars to Look at Urban Issues from Various Perspectives

October 2, 2017

Neil Brenner, an urban theorist at Harvard University, spoke at Shriver Center as part of the 2017-18 John W. Altman Program in the Humanities. This year's program theme is Urban Theories.

Brenner offered a number of new ways to look at what constitutes a city, including their unseen infrastructures and further-flung locations where resources are extracted so that the city might thrive.

College of Arts & Sciences communications intern Mackenzie Rossero wrote an article about the talk.
