Seminar: Rediscovering the Commons. Urban Living, Commons and Gender

Seminar at the Center for Interdisciplinary Women's and Gender Studies, Technical University of Berlin Lecturers: Sabine Hark, Hanna Meißner and Bettina Barthel.

Commons are regulated social relations that produce new forms of collectivization 'from below' and open up possibilities of a "politics beyond market and state".

In the seminar we ask in which respects [gender] is (de-)thematized as a structural category and interdependent identity category in debates on urban and housing commons.

The seminar is part of a research project at ZIFG on discourses and practices of urban housing in communities.
