Download e-book for iPad: Favelas Cariocas: Ontem e hoje (Portuguese Edition) by Luiz Antônio Machado da Silva,Letícia de Luna Freire,Soraya

By Luiz Antônio Machado da Silva,Letícia de Luna Freire,Soraya Silveira Simões,Marco Antônio da Silva Mello,Marco Antônio da silva Melo

Este livro é uma obra de fôlego, composta a partir de artigos de pesquisadores que participaram do colóquio “Aspectos Humanos da Favela Carioca: ontem e hoje”, realizado pelo Laboratório de Etnografia Metropolitana, no Instituto de Filosofia e Ciências Sociais da Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (LeMetro/IFCS-UFRJ), em maio de 2010. O colóquio e os artigos aqui reunidos são, ao mesmo pace, uma homenagem ao cinquentenário da pesquisa pioneira da SAGMACS – realizada sob a coordenação do sociólogo José Arthur Rios e publicada pelo jornal O Estado de S. Paulo, em 1960 –, e uma atualização da produção acadêmica sobre o tema neste início de século XXI, em plena period das chamadas cidades globais. Os autores que integram esta coletânea, oriundos de diversos campos disciplinares, evidenciam em seus trabalhos não apenas a ideologia urbana intervencionista e autoritária que vigorava à época — cuja marca maior é a política de remoção de populações —, mas revelam ainda que, mesmo nos dias de hoje, essa forma urbana chamada “favela” permanece fornecendo muitos elementos para acalorados e instigantes debates nas arenas públicas. Definida tecnicamente pelo IBGE como “aglomerado urbano subnormal”, a favela emerge no vocabulário da cidade — das letras de samba e funks às manchetes de jornais — por meio de curiosas metáforas e surpreendentes eufemismos.
