  • Pandemia, Neoextractivismos y Propuestas Alternativas desde el Sur | CEDLA

    CEDLA Events 2020 oct 9 Pandemia, Neoextractivismos y Propuestas Alternativas desde el Sur Maristella Svampa, Universidad Nacional de la Plata Vivimos un contexto de exacerbación del neoextractivismo y de la comoditización de la naturaleza, que se articula con una regresión política global, no solo en los países del Norte sino también en el Sur global. La pandemia y la invisibilización de sus causas socioambientales, agregan una capa más de espesor a la crisis que atraviesa la humanidad y América Latina en particular (como epicentro actual de la misma), entre la extensión del confinamiento, la concentración de la riqueza y la explosión de las desigualdades. Todo esto conlleva el desafío de pensar propuestas integrales que articulen la justicia social con la justicia socioecológica. En esa línea, proponemos presentar y analizar los desafíos del Pacto Ecosocial e Intercultural del Sur, elaborado desde América Latina, propuesta que venimos impulsando con diferentes colegas, activistas y organizaciones sociales de la región. Nos interesa reflexionar sobre los diferentes ejes de la misma: paradigma de los cuidados, agenda de justicia social o redistributiva, las diferentes aristas de la agenda de transición socioecológica, y la agenda de la autonomía y democracia. Para ello, haremos particular énfasis en el alcance de los enfoques relacionales en el vínculo sociedad/naturaleza, asociados con las luchas sociales y las alternativas civilizatorias, a saber, las perspectivas indianistas (Derechos de la Naturaleza), así como los feminismos populares/ecofeminismos y la economía feminista en América Latina (paradigma de los cuidados). www.maristellasvampa.net

  • CEDLA Events: la filantropía de base liderada por mujeres 110920 | CEDLA

    CEDLA Events 2020 SEPT 11 Una revolución desde abajo: la filantropía de base liderada por mujeres en América Latina Florencia Roitstein y Andrés Thompson, ELLAS-Mujeres y Filantropía Estamos en un momento crítico de la historia latinoamericana. Las mujeres están liderando una nueva ola de movilización y de filantropía a lo largo de la región que comenzó en 2015 con la marcha histórica de “Ni una menos” en Buenos Aires, Argentina. Las mujeres se sienten más que nunca motivadas a compartir sus historias acerca de su papel en el activismo social. Ellas se están reencontrando y reapropiando de sus voces y sus vidas, y están asumiendo su responsabilidad por un futuro mejor. Estos movimientos han sido posibles gracias a las “donaciones” masivas de tiempo, capacidades, capital social y dinero de miles de mujeres. Este compromiso e involucramiento contrasta con la falta de apoyo de la filantropía institucionalizada y de los programas sociales corporativos. Las mujeres, que antes donaban silenciosamente, hoy coordinan protestas, escriben columnas de opinión en los medios sociales, hablan públicamente y se organizan para promover cambios sociales reales, adaptándose a los tiempos de la pandemia del Covid-19. Ellas no pueden “quedarse en casa”. En su conferencia, Florencia Roitstein y Andrés Thompson presentarán su nuevo libro con las historias de 23 mujeres latinoamericanas que son grandes ejemplos de movilización de recursos para el cambio social: La rebelión de lo cotidiano. Mujeres generosas que cambian América Latina. El libro puede descargarse gratuitamente . aquí

  • Event: Fifty public standpipes Barranquilla, Colombia | CEDLA

    CEDLA Events 2020 SEPT 25 Fifty public standpipes: Politicians, local elections, and struggles for water in Barranquilla, Colombia Tatiana Acevedo Guerrero, IHE Delft Institute for Water Education ​ Throughout the late 1980s and 1990s, the Barranquilla World Bank Project aimed to expand water supply to the southwestern sector of the city, populated mainly by low-income communities. Anticipating the duration of the works, the project included a short-term solution: it would install fifty public standpipes during the first months of implementation. This talk tells the story of the WB project and the fifty public standpipes - which were never built. Its purpose is to analyse how water/power distributions have been reworked and consolidated, highlighting tensions triggered by the project at the national and local level. It evidences the messiness of electoral politics and the complexity of political parties (their competing interests, and the fact that these changed over time). This is of interest as it focuses on electoral politics, a subject rarely touched by the political ecology literature, where water policies’ implementation is frequently portrayed as a process of imposition of a set of measures by an essentially uniform group of political/economic elites. Tatiana Acevedo Guerrero argues that, throughout the project, different and heterogenous governments, regulatory agencies, political parties, electoral movements, unions, and business groups, engaged in confrontations and negotiations about different imaginations of the city.

  • Politics, favours and votes: imagining the state and performing politics in Reci

    CEDLA Events 2020 nov 6 Politics, favours and votes: imagining the state and performing politics in Recife Flávio Eiró, Anthropology and Development Studies. Radboud University. ZOOM meeting 16:00-17:00 CET. To contribute to a better understanding of Brazil’s recent rearrangement of political forces, including Bolsonaro's election, this presentation will discuss the ways political candidates imagine and perform politics in Recife. Interviewing and accompanying different politicians of the PT and PMDB parties and their advisors during the 2018 elections, I look at politics “from the other side”. First, this research presents the connections between different political actors, and explores the resources available to each one. Although the relationship between politicians of different levels is little explored in the literature, it is essential for the reproduction of their political capital, mainly through the distribution of resources from federal congress members, and the ability of councillors and mayors to mobilise votes. Second, the research analyses how these candidates and their staff navigate the new political setting, instrumentally mobilise votes and interpret the ways the urban poor engage with politics. I critically examine the tensions they experience in, on the one hand, attending to people’s direct needs and, on the other, the performance of what they consider a “truly noble politics”.

  • No More Innocence: Central America, Migration, and the Crisis of Containment

    CEDLA Events 2020 nov 20 No More Innocence: Central America, Migration, and the Crisis of Containment Anthony Fontes, School of International Service. American University ZOOM meeting 16:00-17:00 CET. Registration form The Central American migration crisis has become a flashpoint in US national debates over humanitarian, identity and security politics. As such, it provides a key lens through which to consider how evolving structures-of-feeling shape US immigration policies as well as broader trends in US public sentiment about how to represent (and target) what some scholars have self-reflexively called “human waste” – that is, those who must be excluded by any means necessary. What are the submerged rules of engagement, so to speak, that so violently devalue the lives and deaths of Central American migrants—and other impoverished migrant populations around the world— in this historical moment? Drawing on fieldwork in Central America, US asylum courts, and migration routes through Mexico, this presentation explores the walls thrown up to contain and conceal the spectacles of insecurity and suffering driving Central Americans north. ​

  • How a Washington Assassination Brought Pinochet's Terror State | CEDLA

    CEDLA Events 2020 mar 6 How a Washington Assassination Brought Pinochet's Terror State to Justice Alan McPherson, Temple University * in collaboration with TNI ​ On September 21, 1976, a car bomb killed Orlando Letelier, the former Chilean ambassador to the United States, along with his colleague Ronni Moffitt. The murder shocked the world, especially because of its setting – in the heart of Washington DC. Based on interviews from three continents, never-before-used documents, and recently declassified sources that conclude that Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet himself ordered the hit and then covered it up, Alan McPherson offers the full story of one of the Cold War’s most consequential assassinations. The Letelier car bomb forever changed counterterrorism and democracy. It also pointed to the underlying, century-long struggle between fascism and human rights in Latin America. In his lecture, Alan McPherson presents key findings of his latest book: (2019). Ghosts of Sheridan Circle

  • Urban floods and the political ecology of the state in Brazil Robert Coa | CEDLA

    CEDLA Events 2020 feb 14 Urban floods and the political ecology of the state in Brazil Robert Coates, Wageningen University The governance of hazardous urban environments has become a critical area for state intervention across Latin America and worldwide. Brazil is no exception, with significant flood and landslide disasters blighting many cities and especially those in the heavily urbanised Atlantic Forest biome. In this presentation, Robert Coates questions what hazardous urbanisation means for processes of citizenship building and the exercise of state power. Drawing on longstanding research in inland Rio de Janeiro and elsewhere, he asks why the failures of past urban engineering, population displacements, and environmental monitoring continue to justify the same interventions as solutions. And why is state citizenship without a reappraisal of urban nature likely to continue reproducing hazards and disasters?

  • The Governance of the Brazilian Amazon in Times of Covid-19

    CEDLA Events 2020 oct 23 The Governance of the Brazilian Amazon in Times of Covid-19 Fabio de Castro, CEDLA & ARTES-UvA Last year, the Amazon was on the world news about the devastating fire, rampant deforestation rate, and increased violence to indigenous populations. The national government responded the international pressure with denial of the socioenvironmental impacts, persecution of researchers, and disdain to the local populations. One year later, the Covid-19 pandemics adds to this dreadful reality. The lecture will address how old and new threats intersect in the Brazilian Amazon and how the different actors articulate new strategies to achieve (contrasting) goals. While the national state uses the pandemics as an opportunity to further their anti-environmental agenda, the virtualization of life, and claims about connections between pandemics and deforestation create opportunities for articulation of new narratives and campaigns by Indigenous and peasant groups. Drawing from few examples, I will discuss the implications of the reconfiguration of practices, policies, and alliances for the post-pandemic Amazon.

  • Virtual Latijns-Amerika expert event Corona in Latijns-Amerika | CEDLA

    CEDLA Events 2020 JUNE 4 Virtual Latijns-Amerika expert event Corona in Latijns-Amerika: Implicaties voor onze relatie met de regio Organisatie door NIMD, CEDLA, Impunity Watch, CNV internationaal De COVID-19 pandemie laat geen land bespaard en veroorzaakt ook een diepe crisis in Latijns-Amerika. De behaalde vooruitgang op het terrein van armoedebestrijding, rechten van vrouwen, arbeiders en inheemse groepen, milieubescherming en verantwoord ondernemerschap dreigen verloren te gaan. Bovendien maakt de coronacrisis pijnlijk zichtbaar dat zogenaamde ‘oude’ problemen nog heel actueel zijn. De Nederlandse overheid, het bedrijfsleven en maatschappelijke organisaties hebben juist ingezet op ondersteuning van de vooruitgang die Latijns-Amerika doormaakte. Dit roept belangrijke vragen op: hoe bedreigen corona en andere crises de ontwikkeling van Latijns-Amerika? Wat is er nodig om deze neerwaartse trend te keren? En wat betekent de coronacrisis voor de Nederlandse relatie met de regio? #LatijnsAmerikaDebat Sprekers: o.a. Achraf Bouali, tweede kamerlid D66; Barbara Hogenboom, directeur CEDLA; Marit Maij, directeur CNV Internationaal; Joost de Vries, correspondent Volkskrant Latijns-Amerika; Marijke Zewuster, hoofd Emerging Markets & Commodity Research ABN AMRO.

  • Why drug seizures matter: Discriminatory policing and violence on Brazil | CEDLA

    CEDLA Events 2020 jan 24 Why drug seizures matter: Discriminatory policing and violence on Brazil's drug markets Jean Daudelin, The Norman Paterson School of International Affairs, Carleton University Recife is a large and extremely violent metropolis in Brazil’s poor Northeastern region. Much of that violence, according both to authorities and drug market participants, is tied to the workings of a large market for illicit drugs. Building on extensive fieldwork and an original dataset that collates all official drug seizures in the city since 2001, this presentation documents the extent to which policing reinforces dynamics that concentrate violence in the markets catering to the poor, while helping middle-class ones remain remarkable devoid of tension. This research is realized with José Luiz Ratton (Federal University of Pernambuco), together we published the book "Illegal Markets, Violence and Inequality" (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018).

  • SP SLICHER VAN BATH DE JONG FON... | CEDLA Latin American Studies | Amsterdam

    FUNDACIÓN SLICHER VAN BATH DE JONG 2020 para la promoción del estudio y la investigación de la historia de América Latina FUNDACIÓN SLICHER VAN BATH DE JONG para la promoción del estudio y la investigación de la historia de América Latina. En 2004, el fallecido historiador Prof. Dr. B.H. Slicher van Bath, miembro vitalicio de la Real Academia de Ciencias y Catedrático de la Universidad de Groningen, Leiden, Wageningen y de la Universidad Católica de Nijmegen, dejó en testamento un legado al CEDLA, que incluye el nombre de su cónyuge JP De Jong, fallecida en 2009. El objetivo de la Fundación es promover el estudio y la investigación de la historia de América Latina desde 1500 a 1930, en particular mediante el apoyo financiero a la investigación histórica de jóvenes investigadores (preferentemente menores de 35 años).

La selección de los ganadores de la beca será decidida por un Consejo Científico, que consiste en: Prof. M. Baud - CEDLA/Universiteit van Amsterdam Prof. G.J. Oostindie - KITLV/ Universiteit Leiden Dr. S. Valdivia Rivera - Latin American studies/ Universiteit Leiden ​ ​ Biografía del Prof. Dr. B.H. Slicher van Bath ​ Bernard Hendrik Slicher van Bath nació en 1910 y murió en 2004. Se casó en 1941 con Jacoba Petronella de Jong (1918-2009). Slicher se formó como historiador y arqueólogo en Groningen y Utrecht. Se doctoró cum-laude en Ámsterdam sobre un tema de la historia jurídica de Drenthe. Poco después fue nombrado Archivero Nacional en Overijssel, dando lugar a: Een samenleving onder spanning. Geschiedenis van het platteland in Overijssel / Una sociedad bajo estrés. La historia rural de Overijssel (1957). Hasta 1970 estudia la historia rural de esta provincia y de otras partes de los Países Bajos y Europa. Los estudios de este periodo se concentran en De agrarische geschiedenis van West-Europa (500-1850) / La historia agraria de Europa Occidental (500- 1850) (1960), obra que de forma indirecta fue solicitada por la revista Cambridge Economic History of Europe. Se trata de un libro que fue traducido al inglés, al italiano, al español, al portugués y al japonés, ganando así el reconocimiento internacional de sus investigaciones. Cabe destacar que fue nombrado Catedrático de la Universidad de Groningen, una posición que poco después combinó con una Cátedra en Wageningen, dónde fue nombrado jefe del Departamento de Historia Agraria, realizó una serie de estudios sobre la historia socio-económica de las zonas rurales de los Países Bajos y Europa. Alrededor de 1950 despertó su interés por la historia de América Latina. Desde 1951 dio clases en Wageningen sobre la historia del continente. En los años 1967 y 1968 fue profesor invitado en la Universidad de Chicago, periodo en el cual se le presentó la oportunidad de viajar a América Latina. Durante los próximos años finalizó sus estudios sobre la historia agraria en Wageningen, para concentrarse en el arranque de un programa de investigación sobre América Latina. El resultado de este cambio en su investigación conllevó que renunciara a su plaza en Wageningen en 1972. Dos años más tarde fue nombrado director del CEDLA, donde trabajó en estrecha colaboración con el tempranamente fallecido Adriaan van Oss (1947-1984). Fue el comienzo de los próximos treinta años de investigación científica, llevada a cabo sobre todo después de su retiro. Esta nueva etapa fue muy fructífera y dio lugar a la publicación de cinco de sus principales libros: Spaans Amerika omstreeks 1600 (1979, recientemente publicado en español [2010]) / La América española en torno a 1600; Bevolking en economie in Nieuw-Spanje (ca 1570-1800) (1981) / Población y economía en la Nueva España (ca. 1570 a 1800); Real hacienda y economía en Hispanoamérica (1541-1820) (1989); Indianen en Spanjaarden: een ontmoeting tussen twee werelden. Latijns Amerika 1500-1800 / Indios y españoles: un encuentro entre dos mundos. América Latina 1500-1800 (1989); De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika, 1493-1820: auteurs, verhalen en lezers / Reflexión sobre el pasado en América Latina, 1493-1820: historias, de autores, y lectores (1998). Fue nombrado Catedrático Extraordinario de historia de América Latina de la Universidad de Leiden (1976-1981) y en la Universidad Católica de Nijmegen (1983), ocupando la cátedra LJ Rogier, también sobre la historia de América Latina. La obra con Van Oss se centraba en estudios historiográficos sobre América Latina. Su investigación cuantitativa no se alejaba mucho del enfoque que hizo en décadas anteriores sobre la historia rural europea, pero los dos investigadores le dieron más fondo a estas investigaciones y se esforzaron para conseguir una historia integral y holística, cubriendo más temas de estudio que en su etapa europea. Comprendiendo así la cultura, la ciencia, el arte, la iglesia y la religión, el gobierno y la política.

    Slicher van Bath de Jong 2020 for the advancement of study and research on the history of Latin America Professor Dr. B. H. Slicher van Bath, who died in 2004 and in life was a member of KNAW – The Royal Netherlands Academy of Sciences and emeritus professor of the universities of Groningen, Leiden, Wageningen and Nijmegen, has bequeathed a legacy by testament to CEDLA in his name and that of his wife J.P. de Jong, who died 2009. The aim of the Fund is to advance the study and research on the history of Latin American from 1500 to 1930 by providing financial support for the historical research of scholars (preferably younger than 35 years of age). Those students eligible for this scholarship are studying history and are preparing for their PhD or have recently obtained an equivalent degree, and are verifiably working on further research. It is further required that they were born and reside in either Europe or in Latin America. The term Latin America pertains to the region that covers the countries in the Americas where Spanish or Portuguese are the official languages. The scholarship is meant for research activities such as archival research or study in various libraries that is to be carried out in the year after the scholarship has been awarded. The recipient receives 75 per cent of the scholarship following acceptance of the award, and the remainder after a final report has been submitted and approved. Each year the Slicher van Bath de Jong Fund offers at least four research scholarships with a maximum of €10,000 each. ​ The selection of the scholarship winners will be decided upon by a Scientific Board, consisting of: Prof. M. Baud - CEDLA/University of Amsterdam Prof. G.J. Oostindie - KITLV/ Leiden University Dr. S. Valdivia Rivera - Latin American studies/Leiden University ​ ​ Biography of Professor Dr. B.H. Slicher van Bath ​ Bernard Hendrik Slicher van Bath was born in 1910 and died in 2004. In 1941 he married Jacoba Petronella de Jong (1918-2009). Slicher was educated as a historian and archaeologist in Groningen and Utrecht. In 1945 he received his doctorate cum laude in Amsterdam on Mensch en land in de middelleeuwen. Bijdrage tot een geschiedenis der nederzettingen in Oostelijk Nederland (Man and Land in the Middle Ages. A Contribution to the History of Settlements in Eastern Netherlands). He became Rijksarchivaris (head of the Public Record Office) in Overijssel soon after that. He took advantage of this position to do research on the history of the province. In 1957 he published Een samenleving onder spanning. Geschiedenis van het platteland in Overijssel (A Society under Pressure. Agrarian History of Overijssel). He continued to work on the agrarian history of this province as well other areas of the Netherlands and Europe until 1970. In 1960 he published the authoritative De agrarische geschiedenis van West-Europa (500-1850) (The Agrarian History of Western Europe, A.D. 500-1850), which he had written at the request of the editors of the Cambridge Economic History of Europe. It was translated into English, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese and brought him international recognition. He was professor of Economic History at the University of Groningen and Chair of Agrarian History at the University of Wageningen. A series of research programmes was launched on the social-economic history of agrarian regions in the Netherlands under his supervision at the Department of Agrarian History at Wageningen University. By 1950 Slicher had also developed an interest in the history of Latin America. In 1951 he began giving lectures in Wageningen on the history of the continent. His two-year position as guest professor at the University of Chicago finally gave him the chance to travel in Latin America. The European regional agrarian history that he had researched for so many years became less and less interesting to him. What he now wanted to do was to begin a research programme on Latin America. In 1972 he resigned, and 30 years of studying the agrarian history of Europe was ended. Two years later Slicher became the director of CEDLA, where he worked closely with the historian Adrian van Oss, who died young (1947-1984). This was the beginning of the next thirty years of scholarly research – much of which was carried out after he retired. In these productive years he published five lengthy books: Spaans Amerika omstreeks 1600 [1979], and recently published in Spanish [2010]; Bevolking en economie in Nieuw-Spanje (ca 1570-1800) [1981]; Real hacienda y economía en Hispanoamérica (1541-1820) [1989]; Indianen en Spanjaarden: een ontmoeting tussen twee werelden. Latijns Amerika 1500-1800 [1989]; and De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika, 1493-1820: auteurs, verhalen en lezers [1998]. He was appointed Endowed Professor in the History of Latin America at Leiden University (1976-1981) and at the Catholic University of Nijmegen [now Radboud] in 1983 as the L.J. Rogier Chair in the History of Latin America. His collaboration with Van Oss had centred on an integral historiography of Latin America. The quantitative methodology he applied was very similar to the approach he had used in the previous decades for the agrarian history of Europe, but because the two researchers now aspired to write an integral or holistic historiography, a broader scope was covered that included culture, science, art, church and religion, government, and politics. His last book De bezinning op het verleden in Latijns Amerika (A reflection on Latin America’s past), on which he worked almost daily for eight years, concerns the an interpretation of the historiography of Latin America. / NEDERLANDS CASTELLANO AANVRAGEN ​ Applications may be written in Dutch, English or Spanish and should contain the following elements: 1.
