Financial Statecraft and Ascendant Powers: Latin America and Asia after the 2008-10 Global Financial Crisis
School of International Relations Professors Saori N. Katada and Carol Wise along with Portland Sate University Professor Leslie Elliott Armijo have won a Mellon-LASA (Latin American Studies Association) Grant for 2011-2012. The project is entitled "Financial Statecraft and Ascendant Powers: Latin America and Asia after the 2008-10 Global Financial Crisis."
The project will comission papers that will be presented in a workshop at the Center for International Studies at USC in November of 2011. Final versions of the best papers will be proposed for a panel at the LASA Congress in San Francisco in March 2012. In addition, they are envisioning an edited book or special journal edition for publication of the resulting papers. You can view their proposal here.
