Given the increased dialogue across Geography and the Humanities, the
work of Henri Lefebvre offers a way forward for interdisciplinary
scholarship centered on the city. Taxi driver, intellectual godfather of 1968,
urban revolutionary, Marxist philosopher, spatial theorist, critic of everyday
life, cultural critic, and even pedagogue—Lefebvre articulates an urban
thinking that changes how we approach cities and urbanized consciousness
in (graphic) novels, films, music, videogames and more.
