Security and risk have become central to how cities are imagined in the twenty-first century. In a forthcoming book, Endangered City, LSE Geography and Environment’s Austin Zeiderman critically examines this new political imperative to govern the present in anticipation of future harm. To mark the book’s publication, this event brings together an interdisciplinary panel of scholars to discuss the intersection of security, risk, and the urban imagination. Panelists will reflect on the central theme, offering reflections on the book and drawing on their own research.
A drinks reception will follow and copies of the book will be available for purchase.
