The Failure of Chauvinism: CIPR Brown Bag Lunch

Ever since the drop of oil prices in the international market, four years ago, Venezuela has been undergoing a global and deep crisis. There are few examples of such a crisis in Latin America throughout history. This talk will address the global crisis through a historic, holistic perspective that highlights the structural causes of the society’s collapse. It will also provide insight into recent political trends.

Professor Margarita López Maya is a visiting senior researcher at the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research. For more than twenty-five years she has studied political and social participation in different historical periods of Venezuela’s democracy. She researches parties and popular protest in 20th century Venezuela, especially during the final years when Venezuelan society entered a deep political crisis and the once strong party system declined.

View Full Event Description

The Center for Academic Equity at Tulane University is proud to present Border Li(n)es: Excluding, Extracting, and Expelling Immigrants in the Southern U.S. on September 25, 2018 at 7:00 PM as part of the Equity Speaker Series.

Following a summer of turbulent immigration relations in the United States, the Fall 2018 Equity Speaker Panel will focus on immigration on our Southern border and will feature specialists whose experiences vary from grassroots to professorial work. Panelists will include Josiah Heyman, Director of the Center for Inter-American and Border Studies, Ronald Martinez, New Orleans immigrant activist and spokesperson for the Congress of Day Laborers, Hiroko Kusuda, Clinical Professor and Director of Immigration Law at the Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice at Loyola, and Laila Hlass, Clinical Professor of Law at Tulane Law School and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies.

These four distinguished speakers will share the stage of Freeman Auditorium to discuss the drastic variation in immigrant relations across the national, regional, and local spaces and ways that members of American society may become engaged in or change the now toxic and polarized political climate. This inaugural discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
