With the beginning a new year, and the completion of a year long travel fellowship, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the readers for keeping up with the blog and for all of your comments. As previously stated, the main goal of FAVELISSUES is to become a forum, a platform allowing the exchange ideas and opinions in order further the discourse and practice on the “informal city”.
Although my fellowship has ended, the research is only beginning. I will continue posting on FAVELISSUES, and in addition, I will open up the blog for new writers -focusing on a particular project or city- to post on a bi-weekly basis. I hope to continue the exchange and welcome new contributions!
All the best for 2011 and keep posted for more information on Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Buenos Aires…. as well as a future intro to some of our new writers.
PS: Feel free to contact me if you would to become a writer or contribute a post to FAVELISSUES.com
