The (first) launch of The Funambulist Magazine’s second issue dedicated to Suburban Geographies will happen on November 2 (7 PM), at the Westminster Law & Theory Lab directed by friend Andreas Philippopoulos-Mihalopoulos in London. In addition of this specific issue, I will also present the first (Militarized Cities) and third (Clothing Politics) ones, and we will be very lucky to have Professor Reina Lewis also presenting her text for the third issue.
Please RSVP by following this link.
