Peel Lecture Theatre, School of Geographical Sciences; 19th July, 5.30pm
'The Bristol Institute for Public Affairs (BIPA) invites you to a public lecture given by Professor David Harvey of the Graduate Centre at the City University of New York. His talk is entitled 'Crises, Urbanization and the City as a Terrain for Anti-Capitalist Struggle'. Professor Harvey is due to receive an honorary degree from the University of Bristol in this summer's graduation ceremonies.

David Harvey is one of the world’s most influential social scientists. His many books include The New Imperialism; Paris, Capital of Modernity; Social Justice and the City; Limits to Capital; The Urbanization of Capital; The Condition of Postmodernity; Justice, Nature, and the Geography of Difference; Spaces of Hope; Spaces of Capital: Towards a Critical Geography, A Brief History of Neoliberalism and The Enigma of Capital. His work also contributes to broader social and political debate; he is a leading proponent of the idea of ‘The Right to the City’, and in recent years he has become a internationally recognised ‘public intellectual’ in part due to the success of his very popular online lectures on Marx’s Capital and superb public lectures.

A wine reception will follow the lecture.
