“Discontinuities and Resistance in Latin America”

Latin America is one of the world regions in which borders are malleable or fragile, yet resistant. As its nations seek to establish and assert themselves on a continental and global stage, challenging, and being challenged by, outside influences, historical, political, geographic and economic fault lines often appear to check progress and modernization.

City in Common: Culture and Community in Buenos Aires

Using Buenos Aires as his case study, James Scorer traces the figure and practice of 'the commons' in Argentine cultural production to explore how communities are variously shaped and contested within urban imaginaries. Exploring a diverse set of works, including literature, film, and comics, and engaging with urban theory, political philosophy, and Latin American cultural studies, he paints a portrait of a city caught between the opposing forces of commoning and fragmentation.

Book launch: 'The Hidden History of International Law in the Americas: Empire and Legal Networks'

International law has played a crucial role in the construction of imperial projects. Yet within the growing field of studies about the history of international law and empire, scholars have seldom considered this complicit relationship in the Americas. The Hidden History of International Law in the Americas offers the first exploration of the deployment of international law for the legitimization of U.S. ascendancy as an informal empire in Latin America.
