Philosophisches Seminar und SWIP-Hamburg starten ihre WiSe21/22 Sonderringvorlesung zur feministischen Philosophie mit einer Vorlesung von Prof. Dr. Quill Kukla aus Georgetown University (USA). Diese Veranstaltung findet auf Englisch statt.
Prof. Kukla is one of the most exciting and creative contemporary philosophers working on ethics and agency, social epistemology, bioethics, and the philosophy of language.
Titel: "Spatial Agency, Territory, and the Right to the City"
Beschreibung: The idea that the city should be for everyone and made by everyone is often known as the right to the city. This presentation begins by exploring this idea, and then thinks about how cities are marked by spatial injustice—that is, our unequal access to and control over city space. Kukla asks, how are people unequally situated so as to access a right to the city—how do they have unequal spatial agency, or an unequal ability to inhabit the spaces that make up a city? Kukla will analyze the concept of 'public space' and ask what sorts of public and non-public spaces people need in order to flourish in a city. They explore what is involved in building cities that afford all residents the right to the city, enabling city dwellers of all sorts to exercise spatial agency in shared space.
