Revolution and the critique of human geography: prospects for the right to the city after 50 years
Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Social and Economic Geography.

Abstract [en]

This paper is a slightly revised version of the 2017 Geografiska Annaler B Lecture, which I gave at the Nordic Geography Meeting in Stockholm. It seeks to show why Guy Debord's ([(1967) 1994]. The Society of the Spectacle. Translated by David Nicholson-Smith. NewYork: Zone Books.) is just as important now as it was when it was published 50 years ago - not just politically, but also analytically. To do so, I develop an argument Debord only made in passing: that we live in a world governed by a falling rate of use value. Through this development, I suggest some ways to think about the right to the city - and revolution - in our current moment.
