Third Meeting: August 22, 2012

We had a productive discussion at our last meeting, where we read Aníbal Quijano’s “Coloniality of Power, Eurocentrism and Latin America” and talked about (among other things) Eurocentrism, intersubjectivity, top-down versus bottom-up approaches, Bolivia, modernity, teaching…

For our next meeting, on August 22 (in the Liu Institute, 2-4pm; please note new date), we will be reading Roberto Schwarz, “Misplaced Ideas: Literature and Society in Late Nineteenth-Century Brazil”.

And for our September meeting, Gabriela will be picking for us something by Sidney Mintz, probably a chapter from Sweetness and Power.
