SEMINAR:

Professor Nathan McClintock, Portland State University

Production in/of ‘The Greenest City’: Urban agriculture and its governance
in Portland and Vancouver

In this talk, I provide an overview of a collaborative book project culminating from a three-year study of urban agriculture in Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, BC, two cities renowned for their innovations in urban sustainability. Our comparative study of food production in the two cities reveals how overlapping modes of governance or urban agricultural space, from formal regulation to everyday governance and exclusions, can both reproduce and contest the entrepreneurial logics of so-called sustainable cities and the eco-gentrification that has become a defining characteristic of green urbanism.
