An exploration of traffic in Toronto with comparative insights from other sites throughout the Americas.
The Centre for Diaspora and Transnational Studies at the University of Toronto, the Latin American and Caribbean Centre at the London School of Economics, the Institute on Inequality and Democracy at UCLA Luskin, and the Centro Interdisciplinario de Estudios sobre Desarrollo at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia established a research collaboration that explores the varied relationships that exist between two understandings of the word “traffic”: vehicles moving on a road and the trading in something illegal. “Traffic” is the first of four workshops on the intersections of these two understandings of the word, with subsequent meetings planned for Los Angeles (Spring 2020), Bogotá (Spring 2021), and London (Spring 2022). Each will engage the themes of security, mobility, and infrastructure from the perspective of traffic.
