New Faculty Publication: Dr. King publishes article in International Journal of Urban and Regional Research

Mar 15/13

Dr. Loren King has published a new article entitled: "Seeking like a Theorist" in International Journal of Urban and Regional Research Vol. 37 No. 2 pp. 804-814

Abstract: Warren Magnusson sees a problem endemic to political thought and practice: we see the world in ways that presume and reaffirm the necessity of a sovereign territorial state, on pain of violent disorder in its absence. The solution is to ‘see like a city’, shaking off the dualism of sovereignty versus anarchy and finding a richer space of political possibilities. I admire and applaud Magnusson’s critical efforts to challenge dominant categories and illuminate possibilities, but these aims rest uneasily with his polemical contrast between sovereignty and cities.
