Lecture: From America Latina to Latin London: negotiating (in)visible geographies of international migration

Start: Jun 21, 2016 6:30:00 PM
End: Jun 21, 2016 8:30:00 PM

C McIlwaine Inaugural Lecture
Professor Cathy McIlwaine (Queen Mary University London) - Despite a long history of relations between Latin America and London through trade, diplomacy and exile, only recently have these been extensively established, primarily through flows of people. This lecture examines the nature of these geographies through exploring the processes of (in)visibilisation and the power relations that underpin them. Through interrogating the ambivalent nature of (in)visibility, the lecture highlights the importance of theorising from the global South, in foregrounding the experiences of invisible migrants, especially women, and in recognising how invisibility can reinforce exclusion, but also its utility in negotiating exit from Latin America as well as entry to and settlement in Latin London. It argues for the recognition of Latin Americans in London and the UK who have been largely invisible in public consciousness and policy, yet who contribute enormously to the functioning of the city and the nation more widely.

The Governance of the Global Cocaine Supply Chain

Start: Jul 4, 2016 9:30:00 AM
End: Jul 4, 2016 4:30:00 PM

UCL Institute of the Americas
Popular reports on drug trafficking often focus on localized violence. The cocaine trade, however, is not a series of isolated spaces affected by a product, but, rather, is an interconnected set of experiences, systems, and processes. This workshop will bring together scholars to examine the nature of the linkages between sites along cocaine’s global supply chain and the implications of those interconnections for social, political, and economic life along the cocaine supply route. By integrating existing site focused qualitative research the workshop will provide a deeper understanding of the impact of illegal commodity flows and offer a stronger basis for understanding the ramifications of drug policy.
