‘Wilding’ in the West Village: Queer space, racism and the hagiography of Jane Jacobs

A lecture by Johan Andersson (King’s College London).

This talk will analyse the persistent demonization of the area’s queer youth of colour by local neighbourhood groups to argue that Jacobs’s celebrated notion of natural surveillance (or what she called “eyes on the street”) is fundamentally unsuited for a fluid queer space like the contemporary West Village.
