Center for the Study of Social Difference

This Heyman Center Faculty Workshop on Subaltern Urbanism explores the "the urban" as a historic and contemporary form of life; as a set of protocols for living implicit in the organization of the built environment, the management of human movement and density, and the creation and facilitation of sociality through means of communication and exchange.

João H. Costa Vargas will speak on "Taking Back the Land: Contested Geographies and Sport Mega Events in Rio de Janeiro"

Denise Ferreira da Silva will speak on "PoEthic Polis: Notes on the Ethico-Political Possibilities of the Urban Imagination"
