Article published online in City

After many hiccups my paper on Deleuze and Guattari’s political philosophy as ontology for critical urban theory is published online via City. It comes out of my dissertation work that builds of the 2011 debate over assemblage urbanism and critical urban theory, and argues that D&G can overcome many of the perceived tensions discussed throughout multiple issues of the journal, using my research on South Lake Union as a case study. There should be some free downloads here at the RSA site, and also here thanks to someone who understands science direct better than I do.
