Spatializing Politics: Essays on Power and Place

Spatializing Politics is an anthology of emerging scholarship that treats built and imagined spaces as critical to knowing political power. The essays in this collection illustrate how buildings and landscapes as disparate as Rust Belt railway stations and rural Rwandan hills become tools of political action and frameworks for political authority. By focusing on the architects and spaces of political empowerment, the anthology crosses anthropology, architectural history, conflict studies, geography, public policy, science/technology studies, and urban planning. With contributions by Hector Fernando Burga, Joy Knoblauch, Orly Linovski, and Anh-Thu Ngo, among others.

Spatializing Politics is the first title in the Harvard Design Studies series, produced in close collaboration with faculty and doctoral students. This series presents the diversity of rigorous and topical research carried out at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
