Presented by the Center for Latin American Studies and the Georgetown Americas Institute
On November 3, 2023, CLAS and the Georgetown Americas Institute (GAI) hosted the event Chile After 50 Years, featuring Dr. Arturo Valenzuela, CLAS Founding Director and emeritus professor of government and foreign service at GU; Dr. Guillermo Larrain, associate professor at the Universidad de Chile; Dr. Karin Rosemblatt, professor and director of the Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies at the University of Maryland, and Dr. Diana Kapiszewski, associate professor of government and director of CLAS, moderating. Participants reflected on Chile’s economic, political, and cultural past and present, from the 1973 coup against President Salvador Allende to today and talked about both successes and challenges for Chile in the modern context. After each panelist presented, the audience was able to engage in a Q&A that produced an engaging dialogue between attendees and panelists. Thanks to all who attended and participated in this successful event!
