As part of the Colloquium Series, Latin American Independence in the Age of Revolution, NYU-CLACS is hosting a discussion with Sergio Serulnikov, of the Universidad de San Andrés, Buenos Aires.
Professor Serulnikov will address crucial theoretical and methodological issues in the political history of Latin American independence. To comprehend the different responses of Hispanic American societies to the debacle of the Spanish monarchy after the Napoleonic invasion of Spain in 1807, he maintains that we need a logical, integrated, and long-term perspective. In contrast to certain scholarly positions now in vogue, he contends that 1808 must be conceived of as an end point, rather than a starting point, of the crisis of colonial domination. Professor Serulnikov is the author of Subverting Colonial Authority: Challenges to Spanish Rule in the Eighteenth-Century Southern Andes (2003) and Revolution in the Andes: The Age of Tupac Amaru (2013).
Sergio Serulnikov serves as Director of the Graduate Program in History at the Universidad de San Andrés, Argentina. He is a researcher at the Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas de la Argentina (Conicet).
