Speaker information

Linda Farthin, Writer and educator with 25 years experience in Latin America as a solidarity activist, study abroad director, film field producer, and journalist/independent scholar. She is the coauthor of three books with Ben Kohl: From the Mines to the Streets: A Bolivian Activist's Life (University of Texas Press, 2011); Impasse in Bolivia: Neoliberal Hegemony and Social Resistance (Zed Books, 2006) and Evo's Bolivia: Continuity and Change (University of Texas Press, 2014).

When Evo Morales came to power in 2006, expectations were high that Bolivia's first indigenous president would transform the country. Based on a forthcoming book written with Ben Kohl, Farthing’s talk will examine how well Morales and his movement towards Socialism has done in achieving goals of greater equality and inclusion in South America's poorest country.
