FR3.40.05 Magic City: Dreaming Miami

Miami bills itself as “the Magic City,” a label that represents well the dreams that many fashion in and about the city. Triumph, deliverance, healing, fortune, transformation: all of these notions and more make up the aspirational contours of Miami. Yet far from being just dreams, these notions shape the places that together comprise the physical places of the city. Miami’s places, in turn, rework the contours of the dreams that groups and individuals fashion about themselves and about the city. In other words, Miami emerges as a living nexus of dreamed and lived landscapes. Papers in this session will explore the specific Miami dreamscapes of immigrants, exiles, entrepreneurs, and ideologues, focusing on the constitutive interplay of places and identities.
