Natura urbana: ecological constellations in urban space
 
Matthew Gandy will present arguments from his new book on urban nature by exploring a series of different vantage points for the study of socio-ecological assemblages in urban space.  He will reflect on the possibilities for a new conceptual synthesis that combines observational approaches with urban political ecology and the recognition of non-human others within the ecological pluriverse. 

Matthew Gandy is Professor of Geography at the University of Cambridge and an award-winning documentary film maker.  His books include Concrete and clay: reworking nature in New York City (MIT Press, 2002), The fabric of space: water, modernity, and the urban imagination (MIT Press, 2014), Moth (Reaktion, 2016), and Natura urbana: ecological constellations in urban space (MIT Press, 2022).
