    The Exceptional State of “Roma Beggars” in Sweden2018In: European Journal of Homelessness, ISSN 2030-2762, E-ISSN 2030-3106, Vol. 12, no 2, p. 15-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Across Europe, social-democratic, liberal democracies have become host to growing numbers of impoverished EU migrants (often called “Roma beggars”) who seem to pose a challenge to the tenets of egalitarianism and social protection that are the foundation of the welfare state. Sweden is no exception. Nor has it been exceptional in its response: creating what can be described as a “state of exception” for homeless, impoverished EU migrants wherein they are afforded fewer rights, and almost no access to care, compared to other migrants to the country (such as refugees and asylum seekers). In this paper we examine the nature of this “state of exception” – and consequent denial of rights for poor and homeless EU migrants – and how it has been justified by invoking the inherent fairness of the Swedish system. We do so by reviewing, but especially extending, the Italian philosopher Georgio Agamben’s concepts of state (and space) of exception, bare life, and homo sacer to describe the way homeless EU migrants are understood and treated in Sweden, and then by carefully examining the major policy statement on the matter, the “Valfridsson Report,” which was written to harmonize practices across Swedish jurisdictions while providing the legal basis for making an exception of impoverished EU migrants, and which is now being implemented in law.

    The Tight Dialectic: The Anthropocene and the Production of Nature2017In: Antipode, ISSN 0066-4812, E-ISSN 1467-8330, Vol. 49, no S1, p. 75-93Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay we examine the case of Kivalina, Alaska, twice threatened with destruction, in order to understand the importance of the specifically geological concept of the Anthropocene. We argue that the Anthropocene is best understood as part of what Neil Smith called a “tight dialectic” between the history of geography (the production of environmental knowledge) and historical geography (the production of nature and space) as this dialectic is played out within capitalist modes of production. We focus on the relationship between contemporary geo‐engineering and both intentional and unintentional geographical engineering, to make the basic argument that humans have no choice but to produce nature—to engineer environments. The only question is howwe shall do so.

    A New Urban Order: Transit Strikes, 1886-18952018In: Revolting NewYork: How 400 Years of Riot, Rebellion, Uprising and Revolution Shaped a City / [ed] Neil Smith and Don Mitchell, Athens, GA, USA: University of Georgia Press, 2018, p. 114-121Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Occupy Wall Street did not come from nowhere. It was part of a long history of riot, revolt, uprising, and sometimes even revolution that has shaped New York City. From the earliest European colonization to the present, New Yorkers have been revolting. Hard hitting, revealing, and insightful, Revolting New York tells the story of New York’s evolution through revolution, a story of near-continuous popular (and sometimes not-so-popular) uprising.

    Richly illustrated with more than ninety historical and contemporary images, historical maps, and maps drawn especially for the book, Revolting New Yorkprovides the first comprehensive account of the historical geography of revolt in New York, from the earliest uprisings of the Munsee against the Dutch occupation of Manhattan in the seventeenth century to the Black Lives Matter movement and the unrest of the Trump era. Through this rich narrative, editors Neil Smith and Don Mitchell reveal a continuous, if varied and punctuated, history of rebellion in New York that is as vital as the more standard histories of formal politics, planning, economic growth, and restructuring that largely define our consciousness of New York’s story.

    A relational approach to landscape and urbanism: the view from an exclusive suburb2017In: Landscape research, ISSN 0142-6397, E-ISSN 1469-9710, Vol. 42, no 3, p. 277-290Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper promotes a relational (that is, dialectical view) of landscape urbanism through the examination of an exclusive, racialised Northern California suburb as it has developed in relationship toand cocooned itself from the problems and disamenities ofthe broader urban region. Through the case of the wealthy, mostly white town of Moraga, it suggests that landscape studies must be attentive to the larger regional dynamics that produce and reproduce specific places. The argument is both intellectual and political: to the degree that the recent turn to discourses of and practices concerning the right to landscape' are inattentive to how landscapes are produced, unjustly, through their regional others, then to that degree the right to landscape threatens to reproduce injustice, not overcome it. Thus, the paper argues that any discourse and struggle for the right to landscape must be conjoined with a struggle for the right to the city. It suggests that the right question to ask of the landscape is not so much whose landscape' (as much work on the right to landscape has it), but landscape for whom.'

    Revolution and the critique of human geography: prospects for the right to the city after 50 years2018In: Geografiska Annaler. Series B, Human Geography, ISSN 0435-3684, E-ISSN 1468-0467, Vol. 100, no 1, p. 2-11Article in journal (Refereed)
    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.

    Food Across Borders2017Collection (editor) (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The act of eating defines and redefines borders. What constitutes “American” in our cuisine has always depended on a liberal crossing of borders, from “the line in the sand” that separates Mexico and the United States, to the grassland boundary with Canada, to the imagined divide in our collective minds between “our” food and “their” food. Immigrant workers have introduced new cuisines and ways of cooking that force the nation to question the boundaries between “us” and “them.”  The stories told in Food Across Borders highlight the contiguity between the intimate decisions we make as individuals concerning what we eat and the social and geopolitical processes we enact to secure nourishment, territory, and belonging.
