Paul Goodwin – Re-visioning Black Urbanism

Paul Goodwin is a geographer, urban theorist and curator. He is an Associate Fellow at CUCR and Curator of Cross Cultural Programmes at Tate Britain. His research interests are in the fields of the history and theory of urbanism, critical theories of modernism and difference, black French culture and politics and the intersection between critical theories of the city and spatial design. At the CUCR Paul is developing a number of projects under the umbrella theme of Re-Visioning Black Urbanism, an exploration of new modes of inhabiting, imagining and making cities from progressive black and culturally diverse perspectives. Paul talked about these ideas as part of the Place Beyond Place symposium.
