Detroit-Windsor Discussions: Joshua Akers

Dr. Aker’s spoke with CBC Radio Windsor ahead of his visit to Windsor, while local media also covered the event: view CTV’s broadcast here.

Dr. Aker’s talk examines the material production of decline through a comparative analysis of narratives of the city attached to iconic images of Michigan Central Station and the political economy of the place in which it is located; a place situated within global transit networks and a site central to the ongoing gentrification of the neighbourhood.
