As a plenary session, the event will consist of 90 minutes discussion open to the public, where both experts will approach increasing inequalities from the perspective of how, with the advent of globalization and the information society, citizens have been presented with new forms of control, accumulation, solidarity and freedom. The gathering, given in both Spanish and English with simultaneous translation, will be moderated by Arlene Clemesha, Professor at São Paulo University.
The encounter will serve as the opening act for the two-day conference, which will continue on Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th at the Wellington Hotel, available via live stream.
