Institut La Boétie, Paris
8 Apr 2023

“This conference is the first of a series of two events organized by the geography department of the Institut La Boétie, as part of its chairs, on the occasion of the exceptional visit of David Harvey to France.

David Harvey is a British geographer. He is the founder of critical geography and at the origin of the first spatial reading of Marxist theory. Today, the most cited geographer in the world, he is a reference for several generations of intellectuals around the world.

In this conference dedicated to the geography of capital, David Harvey will present the main elements he has been developing for more than forty years on the production of space by capitalism. This presentation may lead him to come back to different urban processes, to the relations between center and peripheries, or even to imperialism.”
