EUCE York is pleased to co-present a talk by Mr. Tino Petzold, an M.A. candidate in Geography from the Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany on Tuesday, November 23, 2010 from 11 am to noon in room 764 York Research Tower. Title of this talk is “Rescaling Europe through Law – The European Project in the 1960s and 1970s”.
Tino is generally interested in Marxist theories of law in relation to concepts of space. His bachelor thesis dealt with the role of law in the expulsion of the homeless from public spaces in Frankfurt am Main during the 1990s. His current research draws attention to the rescaling of law to supranational forms. Examples are the implementation of a European legal form in the course of the project of a European Union and recent attempts to establish a global legal form in order to govern “climate change”.
All are welcome to attend.
Location: 764 York Research Tower
Time: 11 am to noon
