Join us for an exciting lecture by Dr. Hervé Tchumkam analyzing the social, political as well as historical conditions for urban riots in the French projects in the last three decades. The presentation will shed light on the ways in which not only have the banlieues became a primary sight for the replication of colonial rules, but they also stand out as that space which, while contained within the space, represent the most feared threat to the very space.
