Keller Easterling is an architect, writer, and professor at Yale University. Her most recent book, Extrastatecraft: The Power of Infrastructure Space (Verso, 2014), examines global infrastructure networks as a medium of polity.

This program is a part of Critical Spatial Practices St. Louis (CSPSTL, Summer City Seminar: Critical Spatial Practices St. Louis), a multi-platform convening that takes on the spatial politics of the city with local and international figures in art and architecture. CSPSTL constellates around a series of city-wide exhibitions addressing the entanglements between (sub)urbanism, landscape, and race. Critical Spatial Practices St. Louis is the second Summer City Seminar carried out through Washington University’s Divided City Initiative, a Mellon funded program linking architecture, urbanism, and the humanities. The Divided City is a collaborative effort of Washington University’s Center for the Humanities and the Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts.
