Diversities and inequalities in Latin America


This school aims to expose an updated overview analysis on the relationship between diversity and social inequality in Latin America, articulating various disciplines on the basis of research conducted fans several countries in the region.

The school will address themes that problematize concrete phenomena of social asymmetry and its structural effects, in terms of creation and attribution of material and symbolic goods in contemporary socio-political horizon in this macro region. Specifically, conferences will offer a broad range of perspectives in order to better characterize nodal interrogation: how the unequal distribution of resources is manifested, maintained and / or processed through different ethnic, of gender, class and social status?

This school aims to give continuity to a first vision established in 2014, which was mainly offered in Spanish. This new version will be trilingual: French, English and Spanish.

The school is based on a synergy with the working group discussions around scientific axes of Studies Network on Latin America of Montreal (RÉLAM).
