A workshop on tradition and disruption in Latinx and Latin American political theory will be held May 11-12.
The workshop—co-organized by OSU’s Inés Valdez’s Racial Capitalism Initiative, Ray Rocco (UCLA), and Arturo Chang (University of Toronto)—will take place in the Center for Belonging and Social Change, inside the Ohio Union. The event is generously co-sponsored by UCLA, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, the Mershon Center, the Latina/o Studies Program, the Office for Diversity and Inclusion, the Multicultural Center and the Center for Latin American Studies.
The workshop explores the contributions of Latinx political theorists to the field of political theory. The event will focus on questions and approaches that characterize the study of Latinx Political Theory and its relation with Latin American thought and ongoing debates in the broader field of political theory.
The workshop will focus on discussion rather than lengthy presentations, so attendees are expected to have read the papers in advance (see below for a full list of participants).
Time is tentatively May 11, 9 am - 5 pm; May 12, 9 am - 3 pm.
