Forum for Scholars and Publics, Old Chem 011


Light lunch served

Join us for a discussion with interdisciplinary scholars Jeffrey Rubin (Boston University) and Suzanne Katzenstein (Duke University) about the relationship between progressive political reform and the conduct of business in Latin America and India. Moderated by Professor Jocelyn Olcott of Duke University, this discussion will offer an opportunity to draw from geographically-specific case studies to identify more general patterns and processes of engagement between progressive political movements and private-sector businesses.

Professor Rubin's visit to Duke is co-sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics, the Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies, the Kenan Institute for Ethics, International Comparative Studies, the Global Brazil Lab at the Franklin Humanities Institute, and the Department of History.

(Rubin will participate in two other discussions during his visit to Duke. On Monday, Oct. 26, at 1:45, he'll talk with undergraduates about Sustaining Activism: A Brazilian Women's Movement and a Father-Daughter Collaboration, a book he co-authored with his daughter, Emma Sokoloff-Rubin. And on Monday, Oct. 26 at 6:00 pm, he'll present on his book, Enduring Reform. More information for those events can be found on the linked Duke Events Calendar listings.)
