This collaborative issue on rats closes the first cycle of Tarde´s explorations on human-animal entanglements in public places. It is also the first edition conducted in two cities, Medellín, Colombia, and New York City. We explored rats infrastructuring the urban space in different ways, spotted a set of rat-human interactions, and reflected on rats´ imaginaries. This number has been curated by Karolina Lukasik, Heta Lähdesmäki, and Toumas Aivelo from the Urban Rats Project.
