Luncheon with a presentation, “Surrogate States,” by Gary Leggett MUP ’08
Gary Leggett was the 2008 Recipient of the Druker Prize. His presentation will focus on the failure of statehood in the Amazon and the relationship between scales and structures of power. Gary examines infrastructural projects as spatial cues for a critique of government and planning. He will be dealing particularly with the spatial expansion of evangelical communities in relation to road construction and conservation practices.
The Druker Traveling Fellowship, established in 1986 by Ronald M. Druker, Loeb Fellow ’76, and by the Trustees of the Bertram A.
