This panel explores the roles of transient creativities that shape the urban landscape of Latin American cities in the 20th and 21st centuries.

How do pamphlets, graffiti, advertising, embodied culture, performances, architecture and other diverse media work as systems of enunciability and (re)signification of the urban space? How do these processes of inscription create complex city layers?

Please send 300-500 word abstracts to Agnese Codebo (ac3244@columbia.edu)or Wendy Muñiz (wvm2102@ columbia.edu).
