Few studies look at how the most marginalized groups in society claim their rights to the city. Dr. Beverly Mullings will speak about how marginalized youth in Kingston, Jamaica and Montreal, Canada challenge how we think about creating common spaces for social and political action.
Dr. Mullings will be speaking on Thursday, November 14 2013 at 3:00-5:00 p.m. in Room 324 MW (Social Sciences Building). Her talk is entitled: “Caribbean Youth, Urban Governance and the Right to the City”.
