“A-typical Muslims: A Discourse of ‘True’ and ‘Tntegrated’ Islam Among Young Italian-Bangladeshis Living in Rome (Italy),” by Andrea Priori, CMS Seminar Series
Wednesday, November 18, 2020
‘Our parents couldn’t teach us what Islam actually is!’ This assertion, made by a 24-year-old youth, epitomizes the critical stance of second-generation Italian-Bangladeshis towards the religiosity of first-generation migrants. Based on ethnographic research within the Bangladeshi community in Rome, this presentation illustrates the apparently oxymoronic characteristics of a discourse of Muslim-ness which, despite stressing the importance of a return to the primary sources of Islam, combines...

South of the Future: Marketing Care and Speculating Life in South Asia and the Americas, by Anindita Banerjee & Debra Castillo

“Votes, Drugs, and Violence. Elections and Subnational Criminal Governance Regimes in Mexico,” by Sandra J. Ley, LASP Seminar Series
Monday, December 7, 2020
Drug cartels in Mexico have openly attacked mayors and local party candidates, as part of their strategy to develop subnational criminal governance regimes. Political vulnerability, afforded by intergovernmental partisan conflict, and political opportunities, opened by subnational elections cycles, are causally related to the probability of attacks against mayors and party candidates. These attacks have subsequently affected citizen participation and engagement with electoral politics.

Forced to leave Venezuela because of political repression, fear of violence, economic hardship, and lack of institutional support for their work, the two artists moved to New York, where they developed installations and performances that put the...
