The 2014-15 LiveMove Speaker Series, in Partnership with the UO Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies(CLLAS), presents:

Dr. Adonia E. Lugo is an urban anthropologist and a leading voice for a diverse bike movement. She studies the conflicting, complex ways that people inhabit cities and streets as human infrastructure. Using bicycling, walking, and riding transit as embodied methods for observing the power dynamics of urban space, she draws on the tradition of flânerie and feminist critical theory’s situated knowledge to argue that our social positions influence what we consider normal in street life. Dr. Lugo believes that cross-cultural understanding and respect for diverse realities are central to fostering sustainable mobilities. She received a BA in anthropology from Reed College in Portland, OR in 2005, an MA in anthropology from UC Irvine in 2010, and a PhD in anthropology from UC Irvine in 2013. Dr. Lugo currently lives in Washington, DC, where she managed the Equity Initiative at the League of American Bicyclists from November 2013 to March 2015.

This event is cosponsored by the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies’Advancing Latino Equity Research Action Project.
