that Bolter and Grusin refer to is reflective of our inability to fully comprehend the inner workings and the impact in our lives of digital media ecologies where ‘software and the spatiality of everyday life become mutually constituted’ (Kitchin and Dodge, 2011 : 16). The digital paradigm that emerges from this mutual constitution (the assemblage of computer code and urban space) has three important outcomes: first, it reconfigures trust. As we become involved in ‘a state of continuous electronic engagement with [our] surroundings’, as Mitchell ( 2003 : 2) states

Note 1 Although this interview was conducted primarily in English, the right to come and go, known as direito de ir e vir in Portuguese, is a constitutional right in Brazil (art. 5, subsection 15, of the 1988 Federal Constitution). The Portuguese expression thus carries semantic gravity. References Ahmed , S. ( 2010 ). The

A critique of (urban) political ecology
Erik Swyngedouw

capitalism, but a deeper, a more intense and radically reflexive form, one that revolves around reconstructing DNA and genetic material, mobilises the power of the nuclear to drive the economy, forces gas out of shale formations so it can be ‘carbon-stored’ elsewhere, and works to terraform earth in a mutually benign co-constitution, all this supported by a cosmopolitan and liberal

biophysical-environmental change, and historically determined and situated relationships and interface conditions. The findings here highlight the transhistorical and relational constitution of urban socio-ecologies – how power relationships manifest across space and over time. They show how situated, positional, and indeed embodied struggles are interwoven with generalised political

public sphere or spheres. Publics as well as public spheres do not exist in a social vacuum and their constitution needs to be situated similarly in terms of their geography and history. So any consideration of the efficacy of such city networks in Africa might need to make sense not just of the traffic of communication they facilitate but also the ways in which such communication surfaces in the arenas where community voices, political power and private interests meet across the continent. Wale Adebanwi ( 2017 ) has argued recently that such

politics of government. They are often classed as NGOs – permanent and well defined by a constitution (Byrne 1997). They are by and large autonomous from government and operate at local, regional, national and transnational3 levels (Charlton, May and Cleobury 1995; Willetts 1996). Princen and Finger (1994) and Jordan and Maloney (1997) class NGOs, such as FoE, as separate from social movements as they do not practise participatory democracy. As will be shown in chapter 3, where the issue is explored in greater depth, FoE UK does not use participatory principles in its

  History of Freedom in a Swiss Mountain Canton (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1974), 12. This is actually a case study of the canton of Graubünden, which is the only canton where Romansh is an official language (the canton is trilingual, with German and Italian also being official languages). The Swiss constitution recognises Romansch as a ‘national language’ but not as an ‘official language’. It is spoken by about 0.5 per cent of the Swiss population, but it is spoken nowhere outside of Switzerland. There is a decent case to be made that the very mountainous

Young people, subjectivity and revolutionary border imaginations in the Mediterranean borderscape

is what humans do with things. Some of the effects of these doings is to make (or not make) things visible in specific ways. These considerations thus draw attention to the co-constitution of human subjectivities and the visual objects created by their practices. Following this, in my exploration of the potential of the borderscaping approach for de-spectacularising Mediterranean borders, I take aesthetics beyond its traditional focus on visual arts and representation, and towards the role of aesthetics in reproducing everyday life (Saito, 2007

. We have, in other words, all the tools we need to solve climate breakdown, but lack control or visibility over the production processes that shape it. For decades, this has been frustrating and disabling. Yet change is finally at hand. From legal challenges, to climate strikes, to new constitutions, people are waking up to the myths that shape our thinking on the environment. They are waking up to the ‘fairy tales’, the greenwashing, and the individualism. They are waking up to the fact that climate change has never
