Ecuadorians in Madrid : migrants' place in urban history by Araceli Masterson-Algar( )

13 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the decade between 1998-2008, Spain became the main destination for Ecuadorian migrants, and Madrid, Spain's capital, became the city with the largest Ecuadorian population outside of Ecuador. Through a combination of ethnographic research and cultural analysis, this book addresses the interconnections between spatial practices, cultural production, and definitions of citizenship in migration dynamics between Ecuador and Spain, showing how Ecuadorians are key actors in Madrid's recent urban history. Looking at the city as form and content, constitutive and constituting of ideological processes, each chapter analyzes the spatial practices of Madrid's Ecuadorian residents through various forms: the body, the home, public and leisure spaces, the city, the nation, and transnational circuits. Rather than addressing migrants as a general human type marked by (dis)placement, each chapter offers an illustration of how Ecuadorian migrants forge transnational processes through their everyday lives in specific time and place, and how these processes manifest culturally on both sides of the Atlantic"--

Through the Looking Glass: Windows to 'Cities in the Luso-Hispanic World'( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This editorial opens the special issue of the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies titled 'Cities in the Luso-Hispanic World' by suggesting that these introductory pages are transparent panes of glass on a vehicle of transportation passing through and linking the research articles that make up this special volume. The editorial's narrative movement is not unlike that of a car driving through the urban spaces of a city, and the eight authors' analyses are not unlike the moving images of cityscapes flashing before the car's windows. The above metaphor of the narration as a ride through urban space serves to situate a variety of topics (movement, visibility, images, representations, rhythms, noise, heritage, reified capital in the form of buildings, and circulation of people and cultural products) as part and parcel of specific urban contexts, including Lisbon (Portugal), Belo Horizonte, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo (Brazil), Mexico City (Mexico), and Madrid and Córdoba (Spain) through poetry, novels, film, sound and architecture. Running through each contribution is the ongoing enquiry on how urban processes manifest culturally in Luso-Hispanic regions, and at a variety of scales, with special attention to bodies moving in, through, and around specific urban centres
'La Callejera': Streetwalks through Minas Gerais in Autran Dourado's Uma vida em segredo (1964)( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article offers an analysis of Autran Dourado's short novel Uma vida em segredo (1964), and specifically of its protagonist, Biela. Inseparable from the ideological structures of her specific social location in the state of Minas Gerais at the turn of the twentieth century, Biela gradually becomes what Maria Lugones defines as 'la callejera', a female streetwalker of tactical, strategic and active subjectivity. Bielare rearticulates dichotomies of domination and subdual at multiple scales (body, house, city, region, nation) to reveal human experience as 'grounded' in specific time and place, and part and parcel of urban processes spanning from the Velha República at the turn of the twentieth century to the start of the dictatorship marking the novel's publication in 1964
Text to street: Urban cultural studies as theorization and practice( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This editorial questions the accepted view among militant researchers in the academy and radical activists outside of it that activism is not possible within higher education. The notion that theory is not practice fails to see that humanistic enquiry does not take place outside of material reality. Thinking and doing cannot be compartmentalized. They form part of greater cultural processes. This editorial argues that research and courses addressing urban cultural studies can offer the space to imagine activism both inside and outside our classrooms and institutions
