Inaugural Professor Donald W. Meinig Undergraduate Lecture
Monday, April 29, 2013 5:15 PM
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.
