Setha M. Low, professor in environmental psychology and author of the bestselling Strelka Press book ‘On The Plaza’ studies how cultural, social, political, and economic relations shape public spaces. In this lecture, Setha talks about the methodologies that urban anthropologists use in their research (e.g. REAP — Rapid Ethnographic Assessment Procedure) and outlines the most common threats to public space such as securitization, surveillance, and the exclusion of particular groups of people.

This lecture took place at Strelka in 2019 as part of the international conference “Urban Inequalities vs. Urban Inclusion.” To watch the full lecture, visit Strelka’s YouTube channel:
