AbdouMaliq Simone 
Regions of Blackness 

Not so much territories inhabited by Black people or even necessarily configured in explicit ways by racial capital, but rather the untoward implications of blackness coming into the urban world, and how extensive urbanization - as a matter of extending entities and processes beyond discernible proportions and values - engenders a prefiguring of abolition, and way of thinking territories of operation beyond property. 

AbdouMaliq Simone is a world-renowned urbanist and currently a Senior Professorial Fellow at the Urban Institute at the University of Sheffield. He is also a research associate at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity and a visiting professor at the African Centre for Cities, University of Cape Town.
