Starting 24 February 2022 on Thursdays, 16:00 – 18:00 | Elective Course / Urban Theory Seminar | ETH Zürich, Oerlikon, Neunbrunnenstr. 50, Fokushalle ONA E7.

This course attempts at a systematic engagement with the agrarian questions in its many facets. From the classic question of land enclosure, colonialism, and primitive accumulation to the ongoing debates on urban farming and greening. The course, which is organised along a number of thematically designed sessions, straddles the various revolutions and counter-revolutions that have emerged in the global countryside, the utopias of agrarian urbanism, and the world ecology of agriculture.
