“Right-Wing Populism in Brazil Today”

Oliver Stuenkel will give a talk titled “Right-Wing Populism in Brazil Today.” He is an associate professor of international relations at the Getúlio Vargas Foundation (FGV) in São Paulo, where he coordinates the São Paulo branch of the School of History and Social Science. He is also a nonresident fellow at the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) in Berlin, a columnist for EL PAÍS and Americas Quarterly, and a weekly commentator for GloboNews. His research focuses on Brazilian foreign policy, Latin American politics, global order and emerging powers.
This talk is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Political Science Department of Amherst College along with funding from the Lurcy Endowment Fund.

"Medea"

The Department of Theater and Dance presents Medea by Euripides, in a version by Ben Power. This new production blurs the lines between theater, film and reality. Conceived by Maki Ybarra-Young '20, who plays the title role, and director Ron Bashford, the show imagines Medea as one of the strong and dangerous women of the Golden Age of Hollywood. But is she who she seems? Or the more vulnerable actor underneath? Come explore the iconic Greek character as she navigates her role as a woman and an immigrant through the “cinematic lens” of our own history.

Starring an all-student cast: Grace Davenport, Nicholas Govus, Rory Hartblay, Sam Hood, Sterling Kee, Aylin Kim, Navie Kim, Lena Lamer, Sylvie Mahoro, Eli Maierson, Rowan Muzzy, Teo Ruskov, Lorelle Sang, Julian Schauffler and Maki Ybarra-Young.

Scenic design by Lauren Thompson, costume design by Lorelei Dietz, lighting design by Sophina Flores and sound design by Alistair Edwards.

Tickets are free and available to the public. For reservations, call (413) 542-2277.
