About the Author

Cherstin M. Lyon is an associate professor of history and coordinator of a graduate program in social science and globalization at California State University, USA. Allison Goebel is a professor in the school of environmental studies with cross appointments in gender studies, global development studies and sociology, Queen's University, Canada.


Contributors to this interdisciplinary volume make clear how pressing contemporary issues such as statelessness and the structural problems of neoliberalism are locatable in the physical spaces and conceptual places of urban environments. Citizenship and Place is a valuable reference point for scholars interested in the geographic circulation of citizenship issues in cities from Buenos Aires to Detroit to East Jerusalem. -- Richard Marback, Centre for the Study of Citizenship, Wayne State University
Cherstin M. Lyon and Allison F. Goebel's Citizenship and Place takes a collection of essays about place (especially physical, but also metaphorical), belonging, and rights, and forges them into a tightly focused book. The essays in turn effectively support the editors' argument that the citizen's right to have rights is shaped by local experience, conflict, and practice. -- Marc W. Kruman, Director, Center for the Study of Citizenship, Wayne State University
