Conflict and Convergence: Urban Informality in Latin America is a symposium aiming to explore how recent experiences in cities—such as Medellín, Bogotá, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Caracas, among others—can serve as multidisciplinary models for urban and social revitalization in other parts of the world. The event will bring together participants representing a wide spectrum of disciplines, and seeks to generate a conversation among professionals and academics to analyze the goals, methods, achievements and opportunities in the region. The symposium begins with a lecture at 5:00pm, on Friday, October 4th and continues on Saturday, October 5th, beginning at 10:00am.
