Description:

The paper relates that Gerda Wekerle's article "Domesticating the Neoliberal City: Invisible Genders and the Politics of Place" explores a contested public space in downtown Toronto whose central struggle - of a local population assuming control over its public space in the face of private sector actors - is mirrored in similar struggles in urban spaces around the world. This paper critically examines the ideas and issues involved in the contest in Wekerle's article, with particular reference to points of commonality with similar struggles of local populations against neoliberal agents in other urban settings. Given the extraordinary parallels between many of these struggles, the thesis is argued that we are witnessing in these often dissimilar contests an identical and fundamental struggle to define space, identity and meaning in an era of neoliberal globalization. The paper highlights how in these struggles, vulnerability and mobility are key themes that define the resistance to neoliberal agendas and foster place-based activism in diverse contexts around the globe.
