Latin America is on the move. The conference invites you to explore the concept of movement in all its different aspects such as mobility along class, ethnicity and gender lines, movements of people within nation-states as well as across borders but also people’s collective endeavours to give meaning to and improve their life through different social and cultural expressions in a short-term and a long-term perspective.
The neoliberal order of the so-called Washington Consensus is no longer perceived as the only alternative to continental and national progress. In many countries numerous initiatives have appeared creating new forms of state-society relations, policies and economic strategies. To a large extent these options are grounded in the ideal of an active and participative citizenship. The ways in which individuals and groups engage in society, re-enter politics, empower themselves and create their subjective understandings are placed at the centre of this conference.
We ask questions about changing roles and positions in the rethinking of the global order, and about power-relations in a continent moving away from neo-liberal hegemony. We invite you to discuss the spaces within and from which people struggle, co-operate, form movements and take on roles as political, legal, social, cultural and economic agents; the role of individuals and civil society in the implementation of reforms in Latin America; the impact of trade in a globalised world; the idea of the nation within new state-society relations and the significance of violence in Latin American society.
Towards what and where is Latin America heading? We encourage you all to share your research on a “Latin America in Movement”.

Updates about the conference will be published on our web-site www.lai.su.se/nolan2012.
