In November 30, Professor Denise Morado from School of Architecture at UFMG and former resident of IEAT will launch the book The system of exclusion in the Brazilian neoliberal city, published by Editora Lucas Anticapital. The book will be launched, at 5 p.m, on the Zoom platform, through this link.
Professors Estevam Barbosa, director of IEAT/UFMG, Luciana Lago, from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, and Henrique Novaes, from Universidade Estadual Paulista and member of the Editorial Board of Lutas Anticapital will join the activity.
According to the preface, written by Professor Luciana Lago, Denise Morado presents us methodological tools capable of unraveling the perceptions and (re) actions of the dominated to the exclusionary practices that shape the life at the Brazilian neoliberal city, denaturalizing what she calls of the “exclusion system”. The book reveals the “frustration of an intellectual who for years has been immersed in the peripheries of the great metropolis and is committed to those who live there, trying to apprehend and understand the complexity of the production of these places” – she highlights.
