Seminar Global Destinies of Latin America

Seminar 2018 held by Yvon le Bot and Ernesto Ottone

Latin America has been inundated with global flows (economic, financial, criminal, migration, cultural and religious) at the same time as being propelled beyond its borders, to North America and further, on a globalised stage. At the outset of the 21st century, what does the continent contribute to theory and research into social sciences and, vice versa, how are global intellectual and scientific questions addressed in its local, regional and transnational realities?

Monthly seminar held by Yvon Le Bot et Ernesto Ottone, Chair Global Destinies of Latin America.

This seminar takes place at the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme, 54 bd Raspail, 75006, Paris.
