Crude Matters at Harvard

For those of you who have nothing better to do this Friday afternoon, the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University is hosting the following event: Crude Matters: The 2002 Coup Against Hugo Chávez and its Aftermath, Lecture by Fernando Coronil.

Considering recent events in Venezuela, the second part of the lecture's title seems a little dated. Maybe it should read ...and the Aftermath of its Aftermath ;-). Nevertheless, the speaker's credentials should allow for an interesting talk. Here is the complete information:
