Latin America in the Global Sixties: When Periphery Became the Centre
The lecture inquires about the place of Latin America in the global sixties. It will address the trajectories and global influences of certain ideas, as well as political and intellectual projects, that emerged in Latin America. Through the study of the global paths of ideas such as liberation theology, dependency theory, and urban and rural guerrilla warfare, among others, an attempt will be made to show how the global sixties can also be read as an inversion of the centre-periphery scheme in the field of intellectual, cultural and political production.
