Dr. David Harvey, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Geography at the City University of New York Graduate Center, will discuss “The Contradictions of Capital” at the Inaugural Professor Donald W. Meinig Undergraduate Lecture Monday, April 29, 2013, 5:15 pm in Maxwell Auditorium.  
Harvey, a leading theorist in the field of urban studies whom Library Journal called "one of the most influential geographers of the later twentieth century," earned his Ph.D. from Cambridge University, was formerly professor of geography at Johns Hopkins, a Miliband Fellow at the London School of Economics, and Halford Mackinder Professor of Geography at Oxford. His reflections on the importance of space and place (and more recently "nature") have attracted considerable attention across the humanities and social science. He is widely published and has earned many awards and honorary degrees.
The Professor Donald W. Meinig Lecture honors the pivotal geographical work of Maxwell Professor Emeritus Donald W. Meinig, a member of the Syracuse University Department of Geography from 1959 until his retirement in 2005.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
