Research Symposium

Venezuela: Change or Continuity?

The Legacy of Hugo Chavez and the Future of the Bolivarian Revolution


Friday, Apr 19, 2013

8:30 AM - 5:30 PM

Marriott Center, 11th floor, UMass Campus Center

The recent death of Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez has raised important and pressing questions. What might a post-Chavez Venezuela look like? Can there be a Chavismo without Chavez? How could a post-Chavez Venezuela affect Latin American regional affairs and integration efforts? How might a post-Chavez era impact US-Venezuelan relations? This symposium will bring together experts on the subject from across disciplines to share their distinct perspectives on the matter with faculty, students, and the general public.


Co-sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Amherst Department of Political Science, UMass Amherst College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, Amherst College Dean of the Faculty, Amherst College Lamont Fund, and the UMASS Amherst Center for Latin American, Caribbean and Latin@ Studies (CLACLS).
