On January 30 from 4 to 5pm in HSSB 4020, Georgetown assistant professor Javier Puente will be speaking about the history of 20th century Peru. Puente argues that clashing ideals and visions of power have placed comunidades and campesinos at the center of enduring anxiety and uncertainties from economic exploitation and sociopolitical control of the country. A reception will follow the discussion.

Javier Puente holds a Ph.D. from Georgetown University and is assistant professor of Andean history at the Instituto de Historia of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
