Beyond Revolutionary Utopia: Turning the World Rightside Up


event Details

Latin America has produced astonishing wealth for a Europe that dreams of itself as the centre of the universe, yet for Europe, utopia is a place that cannot exist: a fantasy, a dream, an illusion.  Revolution in Latin America, however, still implies turning the world right again, not necessarily with bullets or even ballots but through a balance among humans, the natural world, living things and the life force that connects all.

Join Dr Kathryn Lehman, Senior Lecturer and co-founder, New Zealand Centre for Latin American Studies at the University of Auckland for an illustrated and engaging insight into the socio-political situation in South America.
