International lecture series Space – Society – Economy:
“Uneven Worlds”
(Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt)

 

Since 2010, the Professorship of Economic Geography of the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt organizes the international lecture series Space – Society – Economy which debates current issues examining the relationship between space, society and economy. This winter term, the series focuses on social and economic inequalities and imbalances in our contemporary world. In particular, the lectures explore economic, financial and social processes, practices and institutions that force and reinforce disproportions at the local, national and global scale. By unravelling and deconstructing power relations linked to financial flows, consumption patterns as well as the (re-)production of and access to knowledge, the series aims at shedding light on the underlying patterns and forces of uneven developments and their daily-life effects in different regulatory, political and cultural contexts. To this aim, five distinguished international scholars will analyse (re)production patterns of knowledge and the ensuing elites, the effects of established and alternative business and financial systems (e.g. Islamic Banking), politics and habits of food production and consumption as well as the impact of varying socio-economic processes and constraints on health care needs and settings. The insights gained during the discussions will encourage the participants to question pre-dominant systems and contrast them with established, but less widespread alternatives.
