Lecture: "Race and Democratic Caesarism in Latin American Thought: The Political Sociology of Vallenilla Lanz"
Wed, November 20, 2013 • 4:00 PM • CLA 1.302D
The role of race, citizenship and the state is one of the most perplexing puzzles of modernity. While political thought has been slow to take up this puzzle, Diego A. Von Vacano suggests that the tradition of Latin America and Hispanic political thought, which has long considered the place of mixed-race peoples throughout the Americas, is uniquely well-positioned to provide useful ways of thinking about the connections between race and citizenship.
Dr. von Vacano is the author of several books and articles on race, citizenship and political thought, including most recently The Color of Citizenship: Race, Modernity and Latin American/Hispanic Political Thought (2011).
