Public Things

Democracy in Disrepair

Author Bonnie Honig

A Fordham University Press Publication

Thinking Out Loud (FUP)

  • Examines the rise of neoliberalism by focusing not on the demos but on the objects of democratic life.
  • Asks what becomes of democracy when the things of public life--schools, parks, monuments, utlilities and services--all become privatized.
  • Attends to the historically racial character of public things and how the erosion of democracy disproportionately affects on indigenous populations in particular.
