Aga Khan Program Lecture: AbdouMaliq Simone
4/6/16 As a trope for divergent urbanism, the “Global South”—encompassing Jakarta, Johannesburg, São Paulo, Delhi and other metropolitan areas in the Southern Hemisphere—refers to a distinct amalgam of urban zones constituted by shared subjections to colonialism and underdevelopment, as well as by city-making processes that proceed by culturally dystonic impositions of planning, infrastructure, policy, and provisionally assembled local compensations. Today, the "Global South" is now rapidly fading from view—or perhaps it never should have been envisioned in the first place. The urban South may continue to have some purchase in international political organizing, or in analyses of economic inequality and precariousness of different kinds, at different scales. But urban theory increasingly considers the ways cultural interchanges, economic flows, governance regimes, histories, and alliances actively articulate places in multiple and shifting ways that a continued focus on South–North divides oversimplify or misrepresent. AbdouMaliq Simone will explore this notion “as a means of thinking through the various instances, ambiguities, and powers of detachment as they effect urban residents today, knowing full well that an urban South does not ‘really exist,’” with the aim of relocating the urban South “as a kind of elsewhere at the interior of a seemingly hegemonic trajectory that converts urban space into a uniform everywhere.” Abdoumaliq Simone is an urbanist and research professor at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity and visiting professor of sociology at Goldsmiths College, University of London, visiting professor at the African Centre for Cities, University of Cape Town, research associate with the Rujak Center for Urban Studies in Jakarta, and research fellow at the University of Tarumanagara. For three decades he has worked with practices of social interchange, cognition, local economy, and the constitution of power relations that affect how heterogeneous African and Southeast Asian cities are lived, focusing on the concrete challenges of remaking municipal systems, training local government personnel, and designing collaborative partnerships among technicians, residents, artists, and politicians.

Joan W. Scott, “Gender, Politics, and Psychoanalysis”: Director's Lecture, October 19, 2017
Joan W. Scott (professor emerita, School of Social Science, Institute for Advanced Study) uses psychoanalytic teaching about sex differences to theorize a comment she made 30 years ago: "gender constructs politics and politics constructs gender." Scott argues that contrary to criticisms often made of it (a criticism she herself made in 1986), psychoanalysis lets scholars historicize gender. From this perspective, gender does not base its ascription of social roles on the imperatives of physical bodies. Rather, it is a historically and culturally variable attempt to provide a grid of intelligibility for sex as well as for systems of political rule.

For an article on the use of jurisdiction to mean a state or country, see Jurisdiction (area). Jurisdiction (from the Latin ius, iuris meaning "law" and dicere meaning "to speak") is the practical authority granted to a formally constituted legal body or to a political leader to deal with and make pronouncements on legal matters and, by implication, to administer justice within a defined area of responsibility. The term is also used to denote the geographical area or subject-matter to which such authority applies. Areas of jurisdiction apply to local, state, and federal levels.

The Indigenous State: Race, Politics, and Performance in Plurinational Bolivia
Book talk with Dr. Nancy Postero, Anthropology, University of California San Diego. What happens when indigenous organizations and political parties control the state? In 2005, Bolivia elected its first indigenous president, Evo Morales. Taking power in a “democratic cultural revolution”, Morales promised to create a new form of state and a “decolonized” society privileging indigenous people. This talk, drawing from the 2017 UC Press book of the same title, examines the discourses, policies, and practices of the Morales government to see how indigenous ideas and values were taken up by the state, and what difference it has made for formerly oppressed groups. --- Talk organized by Dr. Joel Correia, with support from the Center for Latin American Studies and the Anthropology Department. --- Connect with us!

Communities that Work Partnership: Talent Development for Good Jobs and Strong Economies
In April 2015, the U.S. Department of Commerce's Economic Development Administration (EDA) and the Aspen Institute Workforce Strategies Initiative jointly launched the Communities That Work Partnership (CTWP). The purpose of this initiative was to document and accelerate the development of employer-led regional workforce initiatives across the country.
