Class Space Anthropology II

  • Presentation


    This curricular unit aims to gather scientific knowledge and ethnographic techniques that allow the identification and analysis of contemporary representations of Space. The programmatic contents were selected in order to cover the mutations, contexts and dynamics that compose Space as a field: from macroprocesses, such as globalization and generalized acceleration, to microrelations, such as the heterotopic and the particular, and thus considering pressing issues such as climate change. It promotes the analysis and reflection on the local and translocal processes that address contemporaneity, along with the seminal impulses that actively contributed to the real and symbolic construction of space.
