Zones of Indistinction: Bio-political Contestations in the Urban Arena

Matthew Gandy

Matthew Gandy is a geographer and urbanist. He is Professor of Geography at University College London (UCL) and was Director of the UCL Urban Laboratory from 2005–11. His publications include Concrete and Clay: Reworking Nature in New York City (MIT Press, 2002), The Return of the White Plague (Verso, 2003) and Urban Constellations (Jovis, 2011). His research on urban infrastructure has involved the production of a documentary film, Liquid City (2007), that explores the complexity of water politics in Bombay/Mumbai. He is currently working on three themes: urban metabolism (how cities function and the ecological dynamics of urban space); cyborg urbanization (how our bodies are connected to urban space); and cinematic landscapes (how cities and landscapes are represented in moving images).
