Pod­cast 2: Mar­git Mayer

After a long win­ter and a busy semes­ter, we are deligh­ted to renew our pod­cast series through a dia­lo­gue with our long-time fri­end, com­rade and col­lea­gue, Mar­git Mayer, Pro­fes­sor at the Free Uni­ver­sity Berlin.

The con­ver­sa­tion was recor­ded on a beau­ti­ful Spring after­noon in Ber­lin, in a gar­den cour­tyard where a cho­rus of birds can be heard sin­ging in the back­ground.   Mar­git Mayer is among the most influ­en­tial scho­lars working in the field of cri­ti­cal urban stu­dies today.  Her many wri­t­ings on urban social move­ments under For­dism, post-Fordism, glo­ba­li­zed urba­niza­tion and neo­li­be­ral urba­nism have influ­enced gene­ra­ti­ons of urban thin­kers and activists con­cer­ned to under­stand the chan­ging con­texts of radi­cal and pro­gres­sive urban strugg­les.  Her most recent books include Neo­li­be­ral Urba­nism and its Con­te­sta­ti­ons (co-edited with Jenny Kün­kel; Pal­grave, 2012); Cities for People, not for Proft: Cri­ti­cal Urban Theory and the Right to the City (co-edited with Neil Bren­ner and Peter Mar­cuse; Rout­ledge, 2012); and Social Move­ments in the (Post-)Neoliberal City.  Civic City Cahier 1 (Lon­don: Bed­ford Press/AA, 2010).
