(p.176) Conclusion: Space and Utopia
Constellations of Inequality

Sean T. Mitchell

University of Chicago Press

This book is about the politics of inequality at Brazil’s spaceport, but it is also about utopia, or the different ways in which people come to imagine and attempt to enact inequality’s redress. The conclusion to the book further elaborates the causes and consequences of the decline of mimetic convergence and complementary hierarchy for Alcântara’s and Brazil’s politics of inequality; it provides an analysis of Brazil’s changing electoral politics; and it offers thoughts on utopias of space travel and about what the future might—and ought to—hold for Alcântara.

Keywords:   Brazil, Anthropology, Inequality, Space, Utopia, Electoral Politics
