Do we need a new notion of kinship to build more livable cities? And what does this mean for how humans and animals are interdependent?

About this Event

Dorothee Brantz, Director of the Center for Metropolitan Studies, Berlin Technical University

Kinship Reloaded: Humans, Animals, and the Urban

Do we need a new notion of kinship to build more livable cities? A number of key thinkers have raised the question of kinship in the context of human–animal relations. But what specifically does that mean for the way we live in cities? Dorothee Brantz, whose work looks at human–animal relations and environmental history, will present historical and contemporary perspectives on human-animal interdependencies to offer a provocative vision for our urban future.
