Wednesday, December 5, 2012 - 13:00 - 16:00CMR 15, The Open University
A seminar with Professor Mariana Valverde, Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies, University of Toronto, Canada. Professor Valverde's fields of inquiry concern social and legal theory, socio-legal studies, and historical sociology. Currently, she is doing comparative research on the history of urban planning and urban policing, with a focus on how cities have used a variety of tools to separate 'good' from 'bad' neighbourhoods. In the fall of 2012 the University of Chicago Press will be publishing her latest book, Everyday law on the street: city governance in an age of diversity, based on five years of empirical and legal research on how the city of Toronto uses legal tools to govern streets (zoning, business licensing, vending bylaws, etc).
Lunch: 13:00 - 14:00
Seminar: 14:00 - 16:00
The seminar is co-sponsored by CRESC Urban Experiments and OU's Open Space Research Centre.
