Living Dangerously: Vital Politics and Urban Citizenship in Bogotá, Colombia

29 October 2012

On 30 October, a seminar with LSE Cities Fellow Austin Zeiderman looked at the social implications of Bogotá’s “zones of high risk” on informal settlements and their inhabitants in the Latin American city. Part of LSE’s research seminar series ‘Cities, Space and Development’, this informal seminar will draw on ethnographic data collected by Zeiderman during his PhD research at Stanford University. The event took place from 4-6pm in in Room 103, Tower 2 on the LSE campus.

You can download a paper based on Zeiderman’s research in Bogotá here, which was recently presented at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S) and the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST) at the Copenhagen Business School, Denmark on 17-20 October, 2012.
