The Social Outburst in Latin America
The John Hope Franklin Center and The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies invite you to the next Wednesdays at the Center "The Social Outburst in Latin America" with Dr. Ana María Fernández.
Dr. Fernández is the co-editor of the special journal Manifesting Democracy in Latin America and the Caribbean. (CALACS Journal on Latin American Studies, 2022).
In this talk, Dr. Fernández will introduce the volume, which presents nine visions that articulate how social movements are organizing themselves, taking to the streets, and social media platforms, to counterbalance inequity and find representation in Latin America. The nine contributions revise the contexts in which protests, uprisings, pickets, and parades have taken place in the last decade. The contributions analyze how effective these manifestations have been in terms of their goals and the (in)direct outcomes, as well as their short- and long-term impact on societies at both local and global levels.
Following the interoduction, there will be a screening of the short films El Estallido (Colombia, 2022) and No Tenemos Miedo (Chile, 2021).
