Abstract
The roundtable invites to a dialogue between researchers, activists and journalists, providing a theoretically informed debate based on first-hand information about the recent revolutionary processes in North Africa as well as emancipatory struggles and enactments of resistance to the neoliberal crisis management in Spain and Greece. By bringing together the current experiences on both shores of the Mediterranean, we want to stimulate, through the lens of critical geography, an active debate of how to reinvent the hope for a different possible order of being. We embed our thoughts and expressions in recent debates about the possibilities to re-appropriate urban space for the Political as expressed by taking central urban squares such as Sol, Tahrir and Syntagma. In all cases, concrete acts of citizenship and resistance radically transformed the meanings ascribed to the public sphere, challenging overtly the established ways to take decisions in politics through the pressure expressed by politics of place, scale and networks. By engaging scholars coming from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, we will think the socio-political and spatial dimensions of this new cycle of mobilizations and protests taking place during 2011.
