Latin American and Caribbean Studies, University of Washington says
This presentation explores the lived experience of urban segregation in Managua, the capital city of Nicaragua. Rodgers will discuss how this metropolis’ urban development over the past two decades can be characterized as a process of “infrastructural violence,” and will trace how this has impacted psycho-spatially on the lives of local inhabitants. Drawing in particular on a series of gang member life histories collected in the poor neighborhood barrio Luis Fanor Hernández during the course of longitudinal ethnographic research begun in 1996, he identifies four specific trajectories – “the vagrant,” “the migrant,” “the delinquent,” and “the penitent.” These archetypical trajectories are then considered through the lens of Albert Hirschman’s classic “exit, voice, and loyalty” framework in order to offer a tentative typologization of the forms of collective (re)action vis-à-vis urban segregation, to allow a better conceptualization of the so-called “new urban question.”
