"The Brazilian Elections: Implications for the Future of Brazil and Latin America"

The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies will host a workshop following the historically significant Brazilian national election this October. Participants, including Peter Kingstone (University of Connecticut), Sonia Alvarez (University of Massachusetts Amherst), and John French (Duke University) will share their perspectives on the election, reflect on recent changes in Brazilian politics, and consider more broadly the contradictions and possibilities of the "next left" in Latin America. Discussions will be held in the Watson Institute's McKinney Conference Room from 4:00-6:00 pm, to be followed by a wine and cheese reception.

Cosponsored by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies and the Watson Institute for International Studies.
