Description

In association with ¡VAMOS! Festival 2020

The aim of the conference is to encourage cross- and inter-disciplinary analysis of urban issues related to violence and inequality, specifically through a consideration of the everyday, creative responses to such topics in the cities that comprise the Latin American and Iberian regions. Beyond the impressive statistics of global urban growth, urbanization has led to a diverse array of challenges, opportunities and creative practices that shape, and respond to, the everyday realities of urban life. Latin American and Iberian cities are further complicated by trajectories of postcolonialism, leading to important points of convergence and divergence. By focusing on the local, the conference will shed light on the lived experiences of a number of key themes, amongst them violence, informalisation, inequality and modernity.
