The Annual Shaw Lecture will be given by Dr. Ulrich Oslender from the Department of Global & Sociocultural Studies at Florida International University. According to his website, Dr. Oslender interests lie in the fields of political and cultural geography, including: (i) critical geopolitics; (ii) spaces of resistance and the geographies of social movements (with emphasis on Latin America, particularly Colombia); (iii) geopolitical discourses on development, displacement, terror, and the connections between them; (iv) political ecology (in particular in tropical rainforest environments); (v) the cultural politics of blackness in Latin America (with emphasis on the Afro-Colombian experience).
