Politics and Protest: The Latin American State and Social Movements
Course lecturer: Prof. dr. Barbara Hogenboom
Time period: 6 September – 29 October
Latin American politics is a puzzling field of academic study. Political discourses and antagonisms are usually very outspoken, be it from activists or from presidents. Shifts of regimes and policies also seem to have been more extreme than in other parts of the world, as in the case of e.g. neoliberalism, 'socialism of the 21st century' and the recent rise of the far right.
