  • NEW PUBLICATION

  • Special Section: The Extractive Imperative in Latin America
    Guest Edited by Murat Arsel, Barbara Hogenboom and Lorenzo Pellegrini
    The Extractive Industries and Society 3:4, 2016


    The first paper in this special issue of The Extractive Industries and Society by Arsel et al. (2016, this issue) describes the political economic context in which the end of the progressive cycle is taking place as one of ‘extractive imperative’. The concept refers to the totality of a set of political economic relationships over nature and natural resources that shape state-society interactions. The extractive imperative manifests itself primarily through environment and development policies that are simultaneously dependent on and reinforcing extractive activities. +INFO

  • BA 8. GENDER, FAMILY AND SOCIAL MOBILITY IN LATIN AMERICA

  • BA 7. SCRIPTING ETHNOTYPES IN LATIN AMERICAN VISUAL CULTURE

  • Period: 5 April – 24 May 2017


    The academic objective of this course is to increase knowledge of how humans interact by identifying others as opposed to themselves using commonplaces and stereotypes — or ethnotypes. At the center we find the images people meet on a daily basis at the Internet, in the cinema and on television; and passing by murals of local street artists. +INFO

  • BA10. POLITICAL ECONOMY OF COMMODITY DEPENDENCE:
    Oil and Drugs in Venezuela and Colombia Compared

  • Period: 9 May – 27 June 2017


    This course focuses on the political economy of resource dependence in developing countries, with a special focus on Venezuela and Colombia in comparative perspective. To what extent are natural resources a “curse?” This curse refers to the neo-structuralist idea that an abundance of natural resources is detrimental for development. +INFO
