Race and the Chilean Miracle: Neoliberalism, Democracy and Indigenous Rights in Chile

Date: 
04/13/2015 - 2:00pm
Location: 
1545 Patterson Office Tower
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Dr. Patricia Richard

 

In this talk, Dr. Richards will examine the conflicts as well as the multicultural policies that have developed in response to indigenous claims in Chile. She will argue that racism is paradoxically reinscribed by policies that on their face seem to be about diversity and acceptance of difference. Richards will bring attention to how the process of generating consent for the state’s construction of indigenous subjects in the context of neoliberalism is not only imposed from above, but also informed by competing worldviews at the local level.
