Benedikte Zitouni (be)

Benedikte Zitouni is a sociologist, lecturer at Saint-Louis University of Brussels and member of the GECo – Group of Constructivist Studies at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. She’s written empirical tales, based on archival work, conveying the people’s ingenuity and the societal changes at work, in the field of urban and environmental studies. Recently, points of interests have been the women’s anti-nuclear peace camps of the 1980s in the UK and the US, the predicaments of today’s urban agriculture in Brussels and, theoretically, for what the theoretical/empirical split is worth, ecofeminism, speculative narration and “terrestriality”. Her current work is on the Port of Antwerp and its land-grabbing tendencies since the 1970s.
