When: September 23, 2022 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The Center for Latin American Studies presents the Fall 2022 Charlas con Café – a weekly space to hear lectures from a wide variety of experts and discuss topics relevant to the Latin American region, Fridays from 1-2 p.m. (unless otherwise specified).

"The Brazilian 2022 Presidential Election: History, Politics, and Crisis" with Arthur Ituassu from the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro

This talk will discuss the Brazilian 2022 electoral context from three theoretical perspectives. First, from a historical approach, it will examine the continuities and discontinuities of the moment concerning other electoral contexts in Brazil's recent democratic past. Second, it will analyze the political context around the presidential election, scheduled for Oct. 2, 2022. And third, it will address the idea of a crisis of democracy in Brazil in a comparative approach with Latin American and other global contexts. Ultimately, the aim is to offer a general contextualization that may inform debates about the Brazilian political and democratic future.

Arthur Ituassu is an associate professor of political communication at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro.
