This blog is a space for the graduate student fellows of the Latin American Studies Program (LASP) at Cornell University. In this blog, we’ll express our views (which are our own and not necessarily those of LASP or Cornell) about current events in Latin America –related to our own work, the ‘receding pink tide’, the corruption scandals in Brazil, or the grassroots movements in Honduras and Ecuador to mention a few. The graduate fellows will change every year, but they will nonetheless generally represent a diverse range of disciplinary interests in the region — from studies on natural resources and community conservation initiatives, to the study of messianism in Cuban cinema, to racial politics in Brazil. Visit our new LASP Youtube Channel to view video recordings of the Spring 2016-Spring 2018 seminar series, including talks by Steve Levitsky, Mary Roldan, Manuela Picq, Deborah Castillo, and George Ciccariello-Maher. And keep-up with our seminar series and other sponsored events through our Facebook page!
