Book launch for 'Radical Space: Exploring politics and practice'

'Radical Space' is the second book in the 'Radical Cultural Studies' series

On 28 April The Centre for Cultural Studies Research will host a book launch for 'Radical Space: Exploring politics and practice', edited by Professor Maggie Humm and centre Co-Director Dr Debra Benita Shaw. The launch will take place at Open School East in Hackney, east London. Special guest Kat Deerfield of Cardiff University will discuss her research into the gendered dimensions of extraterrestrial space.

The contributors to 'Radical Space' explore how activists and artists have re-assessed the politics of space beyond the fixed co-ordinates of Modernity and the nation state. 

The book is part of CCSR's 'Radical Cultural Studies' series, published by Rowman and Littlefield International. The aim of the 'Radical Cultural Studies' series is to examine the culturopolitical, socio-political, aesthetic and ethical implications of international cultures, creating work that engages with the ‘lived reality’ of politics and culture and is alert to possibilities for social change.

The 'Radical Cultural Studies' series of seminars features authors who have contributed to the book series. The seminars are hosted by Open School East, a learning space near Hackney's Haggerston railway station.

The Centre for Cultural Studies Research is part of UEL's School of Arts and Digital Industries.
