Quantitative Research Methods and Techniques in the Study of Inequalities

Course code: GCP00152

Syllabus

The measurement of inequality involves not only the understanding of a wide range of epistemological issues, concerning the primary problem of apprehension of the inequality phenomenon, but also the proper handling of tools and techniques through which we can properly build this window of glimpse and decoding of the social fabric. Against the backdrop of the various epistemic issues related to the problem of inequality, this course aims to provide the student with a theoretical and instrumental understanding of basic techniques of quantitative research and network analysis, focusing on the use of free software and aimed at the empirical study of the inequality phenomenon.

Real Estate Dynamics and Urban Land Use

Course code: GGE00200

Syllabus

The investment decisions of real estate firms influence the way in which the urban built environment transforms and evolves. Analyzing the functioning of the real estate market and its regulatory environment is therefore relevant to explaining urban land use dynamics. The course aims to address the structure and functioning of the real estate market, the main agents of the real estate market, the policies and instruments of urban land use regulation, and the resulting dynamics of socio-spatial transformation.

Human Rights and Citizenship in Latin America: urban struggles against inequalities

Course code: SDB00243

Syllabus

This course discusses human rights and citizenship in Latin America from the perspective of urban struggles as insurgent practices against social, economic and spatial inequalities. The epistemological matrix adopted is the dialectic materialism, which allows to identify the decolonial thought as manifestation of the praxis that distinguishes Latin American social reality. For example, the theoretical category of “coloniality of power, of knowledge and being” shows a connection between universalism, capitalism and racism as axis of Latin America social formation, identified through social inequalities and poverty. As counterpoint, there are concrete experiences of urban social movements as practices of citizenship and struggles for rights, which run between the fields of Constitutional Law, Epistemology, Political Theory, Sociology and Urbanism.

Descripción

Ofrecer una perspectiva interdisciplinaria y crítica para la comprensión del Derecho Constitucional, con enfoque en el ámbito latinoamericano, en sus perspectivas histórica y contemporánea, a partir de referentes teóricos y metodológicos de la Teoría Política y de la Sociología, para agrupar elementos que permiten identificar la estructuración dinámica y el funcionamiento de la sociedad capitalista, así como sus reflejos condicionantes en relación con el campo constitucional.

El ensayo latinoamericano: identidades y desigualdades (Crisis y cultura: América Latina entre la transformación y la reacción conservadora)

Código: GLE00617

Descripción

El curso ofrecerá una formación interdisciplinaria y con participación internacional en el campo de la historia y la cultura de América Latina contemporánea.

El golpe de Estado de 1973 en Chile constituye un episodio emblemático de la interrupción violenta de los procesos de transformación social, cultural y política que tuvieron lugar en América Latina en las décadas de 1960 y 1970. A cincuenta años de este hecho que marcó profundamente la historia regional y en el contexto de la actual disputa entre fuerzas de transformación y reacción, este diplomado se propone como un espacio formativo y de intercambio para analizar la historia reciente de América Latina con atención a dos ciclos históricos específicos: los años 60 y 70 y el periodo de la historia más reciente del siglo XXI. En ambos contextos, interesa estudiar los paradigmas críticos que dieron forma a un ciclo de luchas emancipadoras y procesos de transformación, así como las reacciones, impugnaciones y contrarrevoluciones que despertaron. Se hará énfasis en la cuestión de la cultura, comprendida como manifestación del actuar simbólico de sujetos colectivos, que en sus distintas expresiones jugó un papel central tanto en la emergencia de distintas crisis como en su desarrollo, mostrando a su vez posibles caminos de superación de estas.

Los objetivos específicos son:

  • Reconocer dimensiones claves de la historia contemporánea de América Latina, con énfasis en dos periodos críticos de la misma: años 60 y 70 y las dos últimas décadas;
  • Dar cuenta de las relaciones entre dinámicas sociales y políticas y las producciones culturales.

Médias, technologie et société

Code du cours : GCO00516

Programme

La communication dans les environnements de médias numériques intensifie l’accès à l’information dans la vie quotidienne. Cependant, si les ressources numériques ont été considérées comme des alliées de la démocratisation de l’information – et c’est effectivement le cas dans de nombreux cas – elles génèrent en revanche des circuits de désinformation, qui influencent les scénarios politiques et peuvent conduire au négationnisme. Le cours vise à discuter des problèmes de fond qui imprègnent cette question, en tenant compte de la constitution des médias et de leurs langages pour l’analyse de sujets tels que les cultures technologiques, les régimes de vérité, la spectacularisation, le statut du discours scientifique, la mémoire et l’oubli, etc.

Systemic critique of communication, articulating economy, politics, culture, as well as technology and environment, which understands science, as well as communication and culture, as human rights, in the face of an ultraliberal uncivilizing necropolitical process on a global scale. Reflection on the importance and efficiency of traditions such as communication for development and communication for social change in Latin America, emphasizing its formulation by original, exploited, oppressed, and peripheral peoples, as well as its visibility and articulation around the so-called decolonial thought, and the formulation of public policies and citizen processes of appropriation of policies, affirming instruments and mechanisms of social justice.

Special Topics in Anthropological Analysis II (Anthropological Approaches to Global Contexts: Anthropology of the Muslim World?)

Course code: GAP00205

Syllabus

Since the very beginning anthropology has been devoted to understanding cultural and social phenomena on a local or national scale. However, from the 1990s anthropologists have been concentrated in the analysis of global and international contexts in terms of theory and fieldwork methodology. Based on this new perspective, this course intends to present and discuss anthropological approaches based on ethnographic fieldwork or historical research that allow a complex and in-depth understanding of global contexts, such as processes of economic and cultural globalization; international relations; international politics; transnational connections between different societies or diasporic groups; and imagined communities of a religious, ethnic, or political dimension.

Topics in English Literature: Non-Hegemonic Dystopias

Course code: GLE00549

Syllabus

This course will focus on dystopian narratives produced outside the United Kingdom and the United States, which have played a hegemonic role in the dystopian tradition. This will give us an opportunity to analyse lesser studied dystopian works and examine how they contribute to the dystopian genre in terms of their form, themes, ideology and political concerns. We will pay special attention to the ways different kinds of inequality are represented in these narratives and to the cultural background with which they establish a dialogue. Our starting point will be Danny Denton’s The Earlie King and the Kid in Yellow, which presents a dystopian Ireland where the marks of a colonial past under the dominion of England is projected into the future. Next we move to Prayaag Akbar’s Leila, which raises questions about gender relations, cultural purity and social inequalities in India. We will also read the novel Kentukis, by Argentinian writer Samantha Schweblin, which revolves around the global impact of radical forms of information technologies on daily life and the risk they represent to the notions of privacy and personal freedom. Finally, we will discuss the social and political aspects of the films New Order (Mexico, 2020), Divino amor (Brasil, 2019) and Medida provisória (Brasil, 2020).
