Saskia Sassen

A Time of Unstable Meanings

19 May 2010

Nottingham Contemporary is pleased to present Saskia Sassen, Visiting Professor at the London School of Economics and Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology at Columbia University in a lecture that is based on a quarter of a century of research into the consequences of global capital. Sassen is one of the world’s leading authorities on the social consequences of globalisation. Her meticulous and far-reaching work has encompassed immigration, new networked technologies, the dynamics of global cities, the changes within the nation-state caused by the “transnational” economy and the feminisation of labour. It is characterised by the “unexpected and the counter-intuitive”, used as a way to cut through established “truths” that may not be what they seem. This event is organised in partnership with The University of Nottingham’s School of Geography.
