Seminario La ciudad de México y el Distrito Federal. Pasado y presente: “Los cuarteles de 1782 y otras fantasí as neoclásicas para la ciudad de México”

El Seminario "La ciudad de México y el Distrito Federal. Pasado y presente" del Instituto Mora invita a su próxima sesión que tendrá lugar el día 30 de abril a las 17 horas en la sala Nicole Giron del Instituto Mora, sede Plaza.

El texto que se presentará en esta sesión, y que se adjunta en PDF, es el trabajo del Dr. Luis Fernando Granados (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México) "Los cuarteles de 1782 y otras fantasías neoclásicas para la ciudad de México".

Resumen:

Este trabajo propone una nueva interpretación acerca de los cuarteles de policía que adoptó la ciudad de México en 1782. Tradicionalmente, los cuarteles han sido vistos como parte del proyecto neoclásico de unificar y homogeneizar el espacio urbano borbónico, en particular respecto del viejo patrón de segregación espacial establecido en el siglo XVI. Un análisis de los límites de los cuarteles menores muestra sin embargo que la división de 1782 estuvo lejos de suprimir la "frontera" entre la ciudad española y las ciudades indígenas. A partir de este hecho, el trabajo se interroga sobre el carácter del "neoclásico político" en la cuidad de México, con vistas a obtener una imagen más precisa y sutil de las aspiraciones y, sobre todo, los efectos de la modernización urbana y social en el último medio siglo de la dominación colonial.

Comentarista: Dra. Sonia Pérez Toledo (UAM-I)

Greening Agrarian Studies: Virtual Special Issue

Journal of Peasant Studies: Critical Perspectives on Rural Politics and Development

http://explore.tandfonline.com/page/bes/fjps-agrarian

The Journal of Peasant Studies (JPS) celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2013-14. Volume 1 of JPS was published in October 1973 to September 1974. Part of our series of initiatives to commemorate the anniversary of JPS was the publication of two virtual special issues: 40 Classics in Peasant Studies released in 2013 and JPS 40: Peasants & Politics released in 2014. Included in both collections are articles previously published in JPS, mostly in the journal’s earlier volumes. The articles in both virtual special issues share one common feature: they all remain extremely relevant, especially in the context of today’s worldwide revival of critical agrarian studies.

Encouraged by the success of the two virtual special issues, the editorial team of JPS decided to release a third virtual special issue – JPS 40: Greening Agrarian Studies. As the title suggests, this collection brings together 40 articles on various environmental themes that speak to critical agrarian studies. We hope academics will find this virtual special issue useful in their courses. We hope students of contemporary critical agrarian studies and critical environmental studies, among others, will find it useful in building their theoretical foundations. We hope policy practitioners will find it relevant in informing policy debates. We hope agrarian, food and environmental activists will find it relevant in their political struggles.
