En La Esquina, Beta-Local.  

Calle San Justo, esquina Calle Luna

Discussing a variety of examples from the present and the past, including former Habsburg cities such as Czernowitz, as well as Barcelona, Montreal, and Thessaloniki, this talk will explore urban areas where languages coexist in uneasy tension and where translation takes the form of displacements and connections across the city.  Languages jostle on urban terrain, occupying public spaces, attaching themselves symbolically to sites and landmarks, influencing the creations of architectural form.
