Conexões II Global and Transnational History Seminar - Session II: Fatal Misconception: The Struggle to Control World Population
Praia de Botafogo, 190. Fundação Getulio Vargas - 20/08/2015 - 14:00 - 16:00 - 20/08/2015 - 14:00 - 16:00
In recent decades, under the title of global or transnational, new historiographical debates and theoretical and methodological approaches of the social sciences, produced in the North Atlantic axis, took shape by reflecting the new globalization phenomenon, accelerated since the 1970s. On the South, at the same time, rather than simply importing these new approaches to the reading of History and renewing a parochial relationship with Europe or the United States, scholars have been developing new lines of thought which are not limited to Nation-State political boundaries.
Therefore, research in the North and in the South of the so called Western world have known new questionings and revaluated connections and exchanges between societies, cultures and spaces that have been so far underestimated or disregarded.
The main goal of this seminar is to create a forum at FGV’s School of Social Sciences that could become not only a space for researchers to present studies from the perspectives previously mentioned, but also to understand the relationships and create bridges of dialogue between different new practices of research in social sciences and to contribute to a greater internationalization of Brazilian academia.
Fatal Misconception: The Struggle to Control World Population
Professor Matthew Connelly, from Columbia University, will give the second lecture, presenting the book Fatal Misconception: The Struggle to Control World Population – followed by a debate
session with professor Alexandre Moreli (Center for International Relations/FGV).

His publications include: A Diplomatic Revolution: Algeria's Fight for Independence (2002), Origins of the Post-Cold War Era (2002) e Fatal Misconception: The Struggle to Control World Population (2008).
The event will take place on August 20th, from 2pm to 4 pm at auditorium 1333 - 13th floor
