Dear Readers: I am pleased to present to you this special issue, entitled, Experimental Urbanity in São Paulo. The issue is the culmination of a major scholarly undertaking that began at the University of Chicago in 2013. Since then, the eight authors represented in this collection have held conferences and workshops at Tulane University and Princeton University, convening numerous other scholars whose work focuses on the largest city in the Americas. I will allow the organizers of the issue to present their findings in their introduction, and I will reserve my own comments for the editor’s note, both to follow this brief foreword. I do, however, again wish to convey my satisfaction that this project has been brought to fruition through the Journal of Global South Studies, and I hope that it will become the first of many special issues focusing on distinct geographic or thematic areas.
