Abstract:

Regent Park, Canada's oldest housing project, has deteriorated both in form and reputation. Examining this highly contested urban space reveals that spaces don't naturally evolve or emerge; rather, they are produced, controlled, and maintained through systems of power. Using Henri Lefebvre's theory of the production of space, I contend that Regent Park is racialized in the production of space through urban planning, everyday life, and resistance practices, implying the various fields of the racial production of space. Although Lefebvre's theory allows for the complexities of spatial production to be seen, his theory must be historically and contextually situated. Within the Canadian context this requires positioning Regent Park in a post-colonial framework that allows us to consider the history behind its production. Working with Lefebvre, among others, I will establish how space is racially produced, as well as demonstrate how bodies are mapped onto (and off of) urban spaces.
