Dear Conference Participants,
We are posting a Revised Final Programme that takes care of the outstanding concerns of participants regarding the timing of the panels they were presenting at or chairing and to make room for an exciting new special session.
After weeks of hard work, we can finally announce that the first session on Friday will be a Special Plenary featuring Dr Miguel Angel Perez Pirela from Venezuela, a political philosopher, writer, international analyst, essayist and columnist, Director of the Area of Sociopolitics and Culture of the Institute of Advanced Studies, Editor-in-Chief of the academic journal Revista de Estudios Transdisciplinarios (RET) and director of the daily TV program “Cayendo y Corriendo” in Venezolana de Televisión (VTV) and the radio program “Tactics and strategy” in Radio Nacional de Venezuela (RNV). He will be speaking to the theme ‘Venezuela: Revolution under destabilization, blockades and media war’.
Given how important the fate of Venezuela is to any emerging revolutionary politics, we hope you will agree with us that this is a most fitting special session to start our deliberations with.
Please check for your name and note the sessions at which you need to be present. You don’t have to print this programme out: we will have a kit for all presenters upon arrival which includes the printed programme.
Looking forward to this most engaging of conversations.
On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee
