South(Africa)-South(America): segregation and housing in São Paulo and Johannesburg


G07 | Pearson Building (link Map)
Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: FREE
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

As part of the Urban Salon, this UCL Urban Laboratory workshop will explore comparative experiences of segregation and housing policy in Johannesburg-São Paulo. It will also provide an opportunity to engage with wider provocations as to the scope for building understandings of urban processes through such South-South intersections, perhaps side-stepping Northern based theorisations.

Marie Huchzermeyer (University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa) and Eduardo Marques (University of São Paulo, Brazil) will lead the comparative exchange. Commentators will be Márcio Valença (University of Natal, Brazil) and Charlotte Lemanski (UCL Geography).

This is the final Urban Salon event of the academic year.
