April has been a very busy month. I spent a couple of weeks in Buenos Aires and Santiago, where I gave a couple of lectures and presentations, I met some really interesting new people and reunited with old colleagues and mentors.
I gave the lecture: Belfast Encadenada: Autopistas, disturbios y suburbios en Santiago y Buenos Aires.
In Buenos Aires I presented it in the Instituto de Arte Americano within Facultad de Arquitectura Diseño y Urbanismo of Universidad de Buenos Aires. Thanks to Mario Sabugo and the Institute for the invitation and to all the audience for a very lively discussion about the politics of urban renewal.
To see the presentation please got to the youtube channel:

In Santiago, I presented the paper at Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño y Estudios Urbanos de la Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Many thanks to the dean Pepe Rosas for the invitation and to Macarena Ibarra for facilitating the meetings with the doctorate programme of architecture and urban studies. Many thanks to the audience for raising new issues about conservation and motorways in a broader perspective.
