Cali and Medellín (Colombia) have undergone significant urban transformation
over the past twenty years, having to overcome complex socio-spatial
urban conditions and historical legacies. Since the late 1990s, new political
postures emerged amongst a selected group of university professors, who
were able to employ their academic experiences in order to tackle the difficult
circumstances of their respective cities. With a diachronic perspective, this
conference will critically explore their accomplishments, struggles and urban
legacy, while reasoning upon the future of these two Latin American cities.
Attendance is free but, due to limited places, registration is required.
