Transnational Lives with Nina Glick-Schiller

Connecting with people from around the world is much easier now than it has ever been before. With the internet, phones, and fast travel, we can build relationships and networks in new ways - breaking through the barriers of national boundaries. This development of relationships and their influence despite national borders is known as transnationalism, a social phenomenon that we will be focusing on throughout a four part series.

Race and the Chilean Miracle: Neoliberalism, Democracy and Indigenous Rights in Chile

 

In this talk, Dr. Richards will examine the conflicts as well as the multicultural policies that have developed in response to indigenous claims in Chile. She will argue that racism is paradoxically reinscribed by policies that on their face seem to be about diversity and acceptance of difference. Richards will bring attention to how the process of generating consent for the state’s construction of indigenous subjects in the context of neoliberalism is not only imposed from above, but also informed by competing worldviews at the local level.
