Beyond the ‘3 Rs’?
Year Ten of Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution
Tuesday, February 3rd 4:00-6:00 pm
Baobab Lounge, Merrill College, UCSC
After the failed constitutional referendum of 2007, 2008 was to be a year of reexamination, rectification and the relaunching of the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela. Building on research conducted while in Venezuela throughout 2007 and 2008, this talk will examine the phases leading up to the present moment in Venezuelan politics and the open-ended questions of revolutionary politics today.
Donald Kingsbury is a PhD. Candidate in the Department of Politics at the University of California, Santa Cruz. His work centers on the relation between constituent power and the modern state form in contemporary Venezuela and its implications for political thought.
This talk is sponsored by the Department of Politics and the Venezuelan studies research cluster.
