I want to share with all of you a text that I’m writing for a symposium at Yale University in the USA. At the beginning of the year there was a call for papers for a symposium called Fugitive Geographies. My paper Remitting Landscapes got selected so I’ve been working in further developing it. It analyses the altered urban and rural landscapes in Ecuador through the remittances(monetary contributions) by the illegal migrants that left Ecuador after the economic crisis in the year 2000.
The symposium will be on March 24th-25th and I have a 20 min presentation. I submitted my first draft on Friday and I’m working on my slide presentation awaiting their comments.
I’m attaching my first draft if anyone cares to read it and share some comments with me. I would appreciate it.
It’s only a word text for now so don’t expect some cool graphics yet…they are coming soon.
