Abstrakt (på engelsk)
What does the death of a man named Charly Keunang (also known as "Africa") at the hands of the LAPD and the paupers of 16th century Switzerland have in common? According to Professor Mitchell, they remind us how homelessness must not be understood as a characteristic of the individual, but as inbuilt in economic landscapes. If you are interested, you are invited to read the draft first chapter of Don's upcoming book "Mean Streets: Homelessness, Public Space, and the Limits of Capital"
