Geographers and other theorists have long been concerned with the relationship between visuality and the production of urban spaces. Indeed, the questions of who and what becomes visible at particular moments in specific places has deep roots in the study of neighborhood transformation, downtown restructuring, regional uneven development, and the livelihood of political and economic formations. This session aims to reckon with the politics of the visual as an inquiry point into a broader investigation of how geography understands visuality as method, generative force, and sensory function.
In this session, we hope to grapple with some of the following:
The rise of ocular-centrism as tool or strategy for restructuring cities and communities.
How redevelopment deploys the politics of the visual
The role of visual culture in producing urban politics
Planetary urbanization as visual movement and strategy
The work done by visual technologies in urban governance
