Building radical geographies to see beyond the neoliberal world.

997katharynemitchell

People in the new era of neoliberal globalization are on their own, they really have to cultivate themselves - as strategic cosmopolitans, as people who can be placeless and move around looking for the best opportunities. That's fine for 10% or 20% of the people able to do that - and that's who has really done well in the system, but a lot of people don't have those opportunities. They're stuck in place for all kinds of reasons having to do with history and geography.

Geographer Katharyne Mitchell how a radical geography helps us see the neoliberal world clearly - from the spatial dimensions of inequality that exist beyond the illusions of economic freedom and choice, to the ways our understanding of time and space have been co-opted by the logic of global capitalism, and how we can win them back.

Katharyne is author of Making Workers: Radical Geographies of Education from Pluto Press.
