Legacies of Chinese Labour in Latin America and the Caribbean

Just attended the workshop “Legacies of Chinese Labour in Latin America and the Caribbean” organized by Harriet Evans and Hans Steinmüller at the London School of Economics. A very energizing couple of days!

Two organizational highlights. First, it was great to focus the sessions on discussion. We were asked to give minimal presentations (no slides!) and so we had ample time for questions, comments–an actual conversation. Second, it was particularly stimulating to share ideas and discuss with scholars from many different geographies and institutional contexts. I wish all academic conferences had the same arrangement and composition.
