Urban space can be a place of possibility and a place of oppression. Informal networks of care make communities bearable for people who have been left behind and pushed out by traditional planning, policy and design. Leslie Kern, author of Feminist City: Claiming Space in a Man-Made World , and Anna Puigjaner, GSAPP Associate Professor of Professional Practice and author of Kitchenless City, discuss their research towards an intersectional feminist urban future. Moderated by Jack Halberstam, Professor of Gender Studies and English at Columbia University.
