The destruction of the indigenous peoples of Hispano America : a genocidal encounter / Eitan Ginzberg
It was not the original intention of the Spanish to harm the Hispanic-American natives. The Spanish Crown, Councils and Church considered the natives free and intelligent vassals entitled to be embraced by Christianity and by the Hispanic civil culture. However, at the same time it was the monarchy’s decision to exploit the natives as taxpayers and as a reservoir of forced labor that made its rule in America exceptionally destructive. +READ MORE
En pocas semanas se realizará un encuentro internacional para conocer acerca de nuvas propuestas de dejar el petróleo en el subsuelo. Muchas de ellas inspiradas en la propuesta Yasuni-ITT. Aunque el anterior presidente del Ecuador, Rafael Correa, no entendiera la trascendencia de esa inciativa e hiciera todo lo posible para que los ecuatorianos no podamos decidir mediante consulta popular si queremos o no explotar el ITT, en otros países se están dando pasitos para yasunizar la tierra. En el Foro Internacional Yasunizar la Tierra conoceremos propuestas desde Sudáfrica hasta saber en qué estado está la explotación del ITT, así como ideas de cómo ir dejando los hidrocarburos fósiles en en subsuelo. +INFO
Two weeks ago we engaged into an academic adventure. Driven by our curiosity about social changes in intermediate Latin American cities, we went to Xela to experiment with collective fieldwork. At a place new to most of us, we wanted to see whether such a joint project by a multidisciplinary team of seven CEDLA researchers would allow us to get a better sense of commoning and decommoning processes. +INFO
Myths are created in the streets of Latin American urban centers, using films, street art, epitaphs in cemeteries, Facebook, Twitter, and the ‘regular’ media on a daily basis. This is the field of memory studies, maintained over the past century by historians, anthropologists, geographers, literary scholars and other humanity and social scientists. +INFO
The course deals with the causes, consequences and limitations of political turmoil and change in Latin America, with an emphasis on democratization, development policy and mobilization around 'old' and 'new' social and political issues, such as participation, human rights and justice. In order to understand recent events, we also need to look at dynamics of the past that continue to influence politics and protest: dictatorships and democracies, political legacies (authoritarianism, elitism, populism), social inequality, politicized state institutions and economic dependence on foreign capital. +INFO
