Vrijdag 5 november 2010 organiseert UvA Pride samen met de Mosse Foundation de maandelijkse Mosse lezing, ditmaal: ‘LGBT Politics in Latin America – Redefining What it Means to be on the Left’ door Javier Corrales. De voertaal is Engels. De lezing vindt plaats van 16.00 tot 17.30 uur in de Oudemanhuispoort, kamer A-008 (bron: persbericht).
Despite some setbacks, LGBT groups in Latin America have achieved legal and political successes that would have been hard to imagine in the region just a decade ago. These achievements are occurring because these movements are developing political strategies that defy the conventional strategies associated with traditional leftist movements. By reviewing these strategies, I will argue that Latin American LGBT movements could very well be considered the first post-left leftists of the twenty-first century.
Javier Corrales is professor of Political Science at Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts. He obtained his Ph.D. in political science from Harvard University, specializing on the politics of economic and social policy reform in developing countries. He is the author of Presidents without Parties: the Politics of Economic Reform in Argentina and Venezuela in the 1990s (Penn State University Press 2002) and co-editor of The Politics of Sexuality in Latin America (University of Pittsburgh Press 2010).
