• 尋找一個理論定位

    任何一個關心當代都市議題的人,恐怕都沒有辦法逃避David Harvey。雖然是個地理學家,Harvey卻讓我們從都市空間的雜亂裡看到歷史動力的遺跡。

    前些日子,Harvey來台北,我卻因為有事而無法到場聆聽。甚憾。前些天卻在美國柏克萊大學國際研究中心UCTV Podcasts 上找到他與Harry Kreisler的一場對談,是該中心「與歷史對談(Conversations with History)」系列對談的其中一場。

    這個對談不只談到他新書裡對「新式美國帝國主義」的研究,更談到他的受教育過程、學術發展過程,以及他對年輕研究者的「勸誡」。大綱如下
    1. Backgroundbook cover ... influence of parents ... education ... early interests pointing to geography

    2. Geography and Marxism ... geographers ... dissertation ... 1968 ... Marxism ... residence in U.S ... Engels and urban studies

    3. Teaching and Activism ... learning from students ... activism vs. support ... local versus the global ... getting activists to see the bigger picture ... changing role of geography in political thought

    4. Understanding the New Imperialism ... capitalist accumulation ... territorial logic ... accumulation by dispossession ... financial capitalization ... explaining the neoconservatives ... internal and external militarization ... role of technology ... emerging alliances against the U.S ... failure of oppositional movements ... the case of the Blair government

    5. Scenarios for the Future ... advice to students ... defining an alternative role for the U.S.

    其中那段關於他如何在「都市研究中挖掘出馬克斯主義(或者,反之)」,對於我們這些在書堆中不知何去何從的博士生,最有幫助。
