A Radical Geography Community
We’ve recently published four new reviews: Ursula Lang (Geography, University of Minnesota) on Dianne Harris’ Little White Houses: How the Postwar Home Constructed Race in America; Laura-Anne Minkoff-Zern (Environmental Studies, Goucher College) on Seth Holmes’ Fresh Fruit, Broken Bodies: Migrant Farmworkers in the United States; Ross Wolfe and Sammy Medina (New York-based writers both) on the Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes; and J.Z. Garrod (Sociology and Anthropology, Carleton University) on Leo Panitch and Sam Gindin’s The Making of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy of American Empire.
All four look out beyond disciplinary boundaries – Panitch and Gindin are radical political economists; Dianne Harris is a historian who studies the built environment; Seth Holmes is both a professor of anthropology and a medical doctor; and the MoMA exhibition…well, that’s not even an academic book – and in doing so demonstrate well the value of trespassing borders occasionally: there’s some great work out there that geographers can engage with, learn from, and, indeed, contribute to.
If there’s a book or exhibition, a website or film, or piece of theatre or music that you’d like to review, please get in touch.
