Cultivating relational worlds in concrete environments
: learning with commoning projects in Paris and London

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis

Abstract

This research stems from a concern about how to respond to the dramatic impacts of dominant technological, economic, and productive systems on the planet and those bodies that inhabit it. More precisely, it asks how we might cultivate ethical and emancipatory modes of existence in hard places, in Western European cities, contexts where the uneven effects of capitalism, neoliberalism and colonialism are created and sustained. I call these contexts concrete environments.
