Led by Thomas Rath and Francesca Edgerton (UCL History), the Latin America in the World reading group gathers monthly to discuss recent books which consider modern Latin America from a transnational perspective, and the impact Latin America had on the world and the institutions that govern it.

We are open to all who wish to deepen their understanding of how Latin America was instrumental in shaping global history.

We will be launching this reading group on Tuesday 29 November, at 5:30pm, and our first book will be Pablo Palomino's The Invention of Latin American Music: A Transnational History. At the end of each session, we will decide on the following month's book.

Please feel free to share this information with others who may be interested, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
