About the Conference:
The contemporary physical, socio-cultural and political worlds are being increasingly compartimentalised. In this conference, we want to discuss whether, and to what extent, are the global society and space moving toward a state of generalised and planetary, if creeping, apartheid. Our intent is to take some steps beyond the analysis and exposure of the various forms of segregation, fragmentation, polarisation, gentrification, ghettoisation, militarisation, and ultimately apartheidisation, observed around the globe; and question what are the (bio-)political, ideological discourses and practices, be they hegemonic or banal, that shape those very phenomena.
The sessions will happen both at ISCTE-IUL and ICS-ULisboa.
A few attendee seats are still available, please confirm with organisers at email@example.com.
Only the plenary sessions are open to the general public:
