COMMONING THE CITY: COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVES FROM ISTANBUL AND BEYOND
Güldem Baykal Büyüksaraç & Derya Özkan (eds.)
This edited volume has its roots in Spaces in Common, a seminar series realized in Istanbul in the Spring of 2016, where a group of academics and activists were invited to think together about forms of urban living created through acts of commoning –spaces imagined and lived as urban commons, belonging to no one and everyone.
Just a quick one to say that Routledge have just published my Rethinking Utopia: Place, Power, Affect (blurb below). It's one of those expensive blue hardback jobs (though there is also a kindle edition), but I'm more than happy to help anyone out who can't afford it - just drop me an email (email@example.com). Equally, if anyone would be interested in reviewing it let me know and I can sort that out for you. If you're in a position to order it for a library and are willing to do so that would be very much appreciated!
