Eric Porter, “‘The Future Appears Both Bleak and Promising’: The Politics of Jet Noise Around SFO”

April 26, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm  |  Stevenson Fireside Lounge


This talk is drawn from Professor Porter’s current book project examining the history of San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and various social and political phenomena associated with it as a means of better understanding the core San Francisco Bay Area as a physical, social, and imagined urban space.

The Center for Cultural Studies hosts a weekly Wednesday colloquium featuring work by faculty and visitors. The sessions consist of a 40-45 minute presentation followed by discussion. We gather at noon, with presentations beginning at 12:15 PM. Participants are encouraged to bring their own lunches; the Center provides coffee, tea, and cookies.

All Center for Cultural Studies events are free and open to the public. Staff assistance is provided by the Institute for Humanities Research.
