Bodies, Territories, and Policies in the Production of Peripheral Spaces

This hybrid international seminar aims to explore critical feminist research projects and new epistemologies based on women's urban struggles around the production of peripheral territories.

The event inaugurates a series of seminars supported by the Urban Studies Foundation, whose focus is the feminist struggle in the production and transformation of peripheral territories in different contexts of the Global South, particularly Southern Africa and Latin America.

Special lectures by researchers involved in critical feminist studies will be included, as well as panel discussions of selected abstracts*.

*181 high-quality abstracts have been submitted. An effort was made to include as much regional diversity as possible, observing thematic groupings.

The preliminary program of oral presentations in November, still subject to change, is available here.
