Fourth Meeting: Mintz, September 25, 2012

We had a productive discussion at our last meeting, where we read Roberto Schwarz’s “Misplaced Ideas: Literature and Society in Late Nineteenth-Century Brazil” and talked about (among other things) patronage, affect, ideology, posthegemony…

For our next meeting, on September 25 (in the Boardroom, Third Floor, Liu Institute, 10am-12noon), we will be reading Sidney Mintz,“Production”. Sweetness and Power: The Place of Sugar in Modern History. New York: Viking Penguin, 1985. 19-73.

And for our September meeting, Agustín has volunteer to pick for us something of or about dependency theory, probably from Cardoso and Faletto’s Dependency and development in Latin America.
