Event debates Latin America and peripheral origins of international order in 19th century
Studies of global history and international relations increasingly show that the second half of the 19th century was a crucial moment in the development of the international order. In this context, Fundação Getulio Vargas’ School of Social Sciences (FGV CPDOC) is holding an event called “Latin America and the peripheral origins of the international order in the 19th century”. This public event will take place on August 16, at 2 pm, in hybrid format, in FGV’s main building and on Zoom.
The speakers will be Thomas Long, a professor of international relations at the University of Warwick, and Professor Paula Vedoveli of the Fundação Getulio Vargas School of International Relations (FGV RI). The moderator will be FGV CPDOC researcher Juliana Marques.
In his lecture, Long will present ongoing research (with Carsten-Andreas Schulz at the University of Cambridge) that seeks to better understand Latin America’s role in transforming the international order in the 19th century.
Given the region’s status during this period – largely independent but devoid of significant power and marginal to European international society – it has been largely absent from discussions of the international order. To some extent, Latin American states are primarily understood in terms of national historiographies, regional development and the growing power of the United States. In response to this gap, Long’s research is examining the limitations and possibilities of Latin America’s peripheral influence.
For those unable to attend in person, the event will also take place on Zoom. The discussions will be bilingual, with the main presentation in English, but comments, questions and answers in Portuguese.
