In 2017, Journal of Urban Affairs published a special issue on the theme “Urban Transformations and Spectacles in Brazil,” featuring a set of articles from scholars in the U.S., Brazil, and Mexico that collectively examine the changing urban governance, politics, and rights to the city in Brazil in the wake of the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics. This proposed roundtable gets together the editor and authors of the JUA special issue to discuss the highlights of the publication, as well as their current new work. It also invites other colleagues interested in Brazil to join the discussion on the emerging theoretical, methodological, and empirical issues for research on Brazilian cities.
