Sunday Salon The Private Public 19th @ 3 pm

By | December 17, 2010

Continuing the theme of Banished! for the Sunday Salon, this week will introduce a discussion on changes in the regulation and privatization of public space, the criminalization of the use of such spaces, and its implications for public and political culture.

Again, glance through what piques your interest (particularly the last link on the page!) Look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
