Reynaldo Ortiz-Minaya

Visiting Assistant Professor of African Studies Reynaldo Ortiz-Minaya recently traveled to the Universidad de Ricardo Palma in Lima, Peru, to deliver an address during a three-day international seminar on “Finance Capitalism, Structural Violence, and the Coloniality of Power.”

His presentation engaged a critical analysis of finance capitalism and new developments of structural violence across the world with special emphasis on the Caribbean and the United States. With scholars from Peru, Venezuela, Uruguay, Ecuador and Brazil, Ortiz examined new forms of power relations within society and the ways in which social actors are dealing with and responding to the crisis of global capital.
