Description
This thesis challenges the Creative Class's attraction to urban "authenticity" through phenomenology and affect theory (especially through Deleuze) in order to problematize its gentrification of urban spaces. It contends that the Creative Class's gentrification of urban space in New York City has had a pernicious effect on queer spaces and venues. Using the work of philosopher Michel Foucault, especially "The History of Sexuality" (1976) and "Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison" (1975), this thesis demonstrates how Creative Class gentrification embodies Foucault's philosophies, including "disciplinary power" and the "deployment of sexuality."
