My project examines various aspects of Hugo Chavez’s Bolivarian Revolution pre and post the death of Hugo Chavez through the lens of Black Feminist critiques in order to ask; 1) what might the struggles of some of their most disenfranchised citizens – Black/Afro descended women – reveal about the pros and cons of the global legacy of radical leftist politics being perpetuated in Venezuela; and 2) how do black/afro women’s politics simultaneously support the political work of Venezuela’s 21st Century Socialism and challenge the efficacy of the current global neoliberal crisis?

Duties:

Raising Voices, Building History: Afro-Venezuelan Women as Test Case for the Promise of the Bolivarian Revolution (Working Title)
