Belonging and Public Space—Racism and the Right to the City

This breakout session will explore how othering and belonging is spatialized across local and national contexts in order to influence how racialized groups access common spaces, such as places of work, educational institutions, housing, and other shared public space. The panel will draw on case studies in racial geography to highlight the factors that shape various spaces either reproduce or resist messages of racial discrimination, marginalization, and exclusion. Themes will include: connecting race and place, racial segregation and displacement, the inclusionary and exclusionary politics of spatial mobility, and strategies for cultivating inclusive local spaces around the world.
