Erick Moreno Superlano '22 and BCB faculty Dr. Ayşe Çavdar featured on recent episodes of Spatial Delight
An earlier episode, titled “Cities for the Many Not the Few, features a conversation with BCB faculty Dr. Ayşe Çavdar about mass housing projects in Turkey. That episode looks at different struggles to make cities more livable – and more just – for the many, not the few. How do we agree on what’s best for our cities? How do we create open, inclusive, enjoyable spaces? Who takes charge? We need carefully designed infrastructure to make cities livable for all, and urban design itself is also a hugely political issue. Besides their conversation with Çavdar, Lisiak and her co-host for this episode, urban scholar Dr. Anna Richter, speak to geographer Prof. Ash Amin (Cambridge University) about urban commons and social empowerment and to urban scholar Dr. Carmel Christy K J (University of Delhi) about the intersections of social and environmental justice in the port city of Kochi in the Indian state of Kerala.
Spatial Delight is a ten-part podcast about the politics of space inspired by British geographer Doreen Massey. It is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and hosted by the Sociological Review Foundation. Erick’s episode was co-funded by the Experimental Humanities Collaborative Network.
