September 26, 2010; 84 Minutes; Audio

Exploring their overlapping interests in human geographies, emergent urbanisms, subjective mapping and expressive representations of place, urbanist Michael Dear and artist Marjolijn Dijkman chart an improvisational conversational course through this mutually compelling terrain.

Michael Dear is professor of City and Regional Planning at UC Berkeley's College of Environmental Design. His current research in comparative urbanism includes consideration of the future of the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. Dear's books include From Chicago to L.A.: Making Sense of Urban Theory; Postborder City: Cultural Spaces of Bajalta California; and The Postmodern Urban Condition. His latest co-edited volume, entitled GeoHumanities: Art, History, Text at the Edge of Place, is forthcoming from Routledge.
