Thousands of Canadians will make the pilgrimage to this formally designated National Historic Site found in another country. But what about sites of war memory within Canada?

Book launch: 'The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Latin America'

Start: May 10, 2017 5:30:00 PM

The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Latin America
David Lehmann (Cambridge; book's editor), Véronique Boyer (EHESS Paris) and Andrew Canessa (Essex); discussant: Par Engstrom (UCL Americas) - This book presents a challenging view of the adoption and co-option of multiculturalism in Latin America from six scholars with extensive experience of grassroots movements and intellectual debates. It raises serious questions of theory, method, and interpretation for both social scientists and policymakers on the basis of cases in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, and Ecuador. Multicultural policies have enabled people to recover the land of their ancestors, administer justice in accordance with their traditions, provide recognition as full citizens of the nation, and promote affirmative action to enable them to take the place in society which is theirs by right.

Book launch: 'Peru: Elite Power and Political Capture'

Start: May 19, 2017 5:30:00 PM

'Peru: Elite Power and Political Capture'
John Crabtree (Oxford) - As a result of the liberalising reforms of the 1990s and the commodity super-cycle that followed, Peru's business elites have accumulated very substantial political power which they have deployed through a number of mechanisms to maintain an effective control over the key workings of the state. At the same time, the country's once powerful left has been marginalised as a consequence of the economic and political debacles of the 1980s; as such Peru has seen no 'pink tide' in recent years.
