Workshop Peripheral Neoliberalism_ (002)

Workshop Peripheral Neoliberalism_ (002)

This workshop brings together specialist researchers to explore the entanglements between the local and transnational dimensions of neoliberalism in Latin America. If we can talk of a phenomenon such as “peripheral neoliberalism”, what are its specific characteristics? We will discuss current projects that examine different aspects of the circulation of neoliberal political strategy and right-wing subject construction. This event provides the opportunity to share analytical insights and challenges and to foster the growth of a collaborative research network. Presentations will last 15 minutes, leaving 30 minutes for questions and comments. Please find the whole programme under downloads further below. Draft papers can be shared on request. If you can only participate remotely, please ask George Payne for the online meeting details.
