The next session will take place in B29 at 6.30pm, on Wed 2 June – please note new location. We will be discussing an extract from Lefebvre’s Production of Space (AVAILABLE ON THE TEXTS PAGE) which I have taken from The City Cultures Reader, edited by Malcolm Miles and Tim Hall, with Iain Borden, 2nd edition (London: Routledge, 2004) pp. 257-265. I’ve also included the intro to the section in which the extract appears, to give some background on Lefebvre.

The Philosophy of History reading group is re-convening this term to explore theories of space. This new initiative is being run in the Birkbeck Department of History by Victoria Powell, Madisson Brown, and Neil Penlington.

There will be two more sessions this term, outlined below. As before, readings will be made available here, and all are welcome.

Future sessions:

Wed 2 June 2010: Lefebvre’s concept of space

Wed 30 June 2010: Bourdieu’s theory of social space

All sessions will be held in Room G24 at 6.30pm. This is a 100% student led initiative, so if you’d like to know more or make suggestions for the Autumn term programme, drop us an email and we’ll start to put together a schedule.
