Spatializing Culture: Moore Street Market and Embodied Space in the City

Setha Low is a professor of environmental psychology and director of the Public Space Research Group at the Center for Human Environments, City University of New York Graduate Center.

Low employs Brooklyn's Moore Street market as an illustration of how urban public space links anthropological analyses of the body in space, the global/local power relations embedded in space, the role of language and discursive transformations of space, and the material and metaphorical importance of architecture and urban design. Low is an Institute for Advanced Study Quadrant Scholar in Spring 2010.
