“Why Contested Spaces?”

Speaker: Fatma Müge Göçek, Professor of Sociology and Women's Studies and CMENAS Associate Director.
The analysis of the way space is envisioned and employed in particular societies provides significant insight into the social construction of meaning. And such meaning construction often varies across time as different social groups contest the use of space. Since the end of the Cold War and especially during the last decade, Middle Eastern and North African states and societies have witnessed and experienced many such contestations, ranging from the most obvious political as evinced by the Arab Spring to the less visible including the environment, religious-secular divide, urban construction, art and music to everyday practices.
