Nota de Pesar

Note of grief

The Department of Anthropology is in grief for the tragic death of Marina Kohler Harkot, a graduate in Social Sciences and a doctoral student at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism at USP. The brutal trampling of this young cycle-activist intellectual and the carelessness of the driver who ran over her are a painful demonstration of the importance and urgency of her political activism and her studies on the relationship between gender and the city. Those of us who had the privilege of meeting Marina in the corridors of the FFLCH and in the classroom, at undergraduate or graduate level, remember her as an affable, smiling, intelligent, dedicated and creative person. We hope that she will be an example for many young people and always remembered with affection and admiration for her personality, her work and her struggle. More than that, we hope that our harsh urban reality will increasingly approach its yearnings for inclusion and justice, and that cities will be increasingly human for all, all, and all. We extend our condolences and solidarity to your family and friends.
