Philly DSA Reading Group on Brazil

Hi Philly DSAers and Friends,

This Sunday, May 5, at 4pm Philly DSA is having the next installment of our SPRING READING GROUP. In this installment of our "case studies" of neoliberalism and austerity, we will be looking at several articles examining Brazilian political economy under Lula and now Rousseff. Brazil is really interesting because the government has taken a middle-ground approach between full-scale neoliberalism and the socialist-lite alternatives that are developing in Venezuela, Bolivia and elsewhere in Latin America. Three articles are attached, two that cover the failures and successes of the Lula government and one that looks at continuity and change between Lula and Rousseff. The readings are a bit long, so if you can't get to all (or any) of them, please come anyway and participate in the discussion!

This session, and all future reading group sessions will be held at 1435 South Juniper Street in South Philly at 4pm (usually every other sunday). Easily accessible by public transit (broad street line to tasker-morris, walk north two blocks, take a right on dickinson, then second left on Juniper: house is on the right).

Following the reading group we will go out for drinks at a nearby bar or coffee shop to have some DSA socializing time.


Please contact us at [masked] if you have any questions.
