Projection and discussion of the films CANTO DE FAMÍLIA and CARLOS CAPS DRAG RACE, with the directors Paula Bessa Braz (PPGAS-USP PhD student) and Mihai Andrei Leaha (Post-doctoral fellow at DA-USP, post-doctoral fellow at the University of Barcelona) . Both films were winners of the Pierre Verger Award 2022 in the feature and medium-length categories.

The objective of this activity is to discuss the dimensions of making music that are revealed through an audiovisual approach, from the exhibition and debate of two films made in very different universes, but which keep similarities in the centrality of the musical event to investigate and to describe its dynamics: one about the independent electronic music scene in São Paulo, the other about a family that organizes a social project for teaching music in their own home, on the outskirts of Fortaleza.

Throughout the history of anthropology, the city's heterogeneity and diversity have been perceived as the driving force in the production of urban spaces and borders. The city starts to be conceived as a specific environment capable of conglomerating differences through its economic and institutional base or through identification processes. However, there is little systematization of the relational processes that lead to the production of inequalities and the crystallization of differences, and notions such as identity, culture and race have been seen as elements prior to the constitution of urban relations that establish them. Thus, although urban studies, on their most different fronts, are permeated by the meta-narratives of urbanization, modernization, development and their constant crises, the counterparts that define such narratives are rarely made explicit. In this dossier, we are interested in scrutinizing how different processes of racialization were consistent with the production of urban diversity and inequality in different cities around the globe. In this sense, we are interested in research aimed at investigating social processes, intellectual itineraries, agents, social movements and different bureaucratic, technical and scientific institutions that defined and shaped racializing categories that (re)produce the various urban social groups, as well as the practices and mobilized logics. We invite articles that seek to think about race and city not from a priori conceptual categories, preexisting relationships, but that seek to ethnography both processes of racialization of urban groups and assemblages produced around the idea of ​​race. Finally, we invite critical texts of established narratives about cities and urbanization in the social sciences from different metropolitan realities in different regions of the world.
