The Structure of Political Conflict: the oligarchs and bourgeoisie in the Chilean congress, 1834-1894
In October, the “Seminário Mensal Movimentos Sociais e Ação Política” returns with Professor Naim Bro’s presentation of his latest published article, “The Structure of Political Conflict: the oligarchs and bourgeoisie in the Chilean congress, 1834-1894,” discussing the structure of the elite in 19th century conflicts in Chile. The session will be on Wednesday (12/10) at 4pm, online.
Answering how new groups were incorporated into the political elites in oligarchic societies, Naim Bro develops a model of analysis considering that factions of a traditional group dispute among themselves for the control of power, recruiting, as the conflict escalates, groups that were previously excluded from politics, altering the social composition of the dominant class.
Naim Bro is Assistant Professor at the Escuela de Gobierno, Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, Chile, and is a PhD in Sociology from the University of Cambridge, with research interests in political sociology, stratification, and computational social science. ZOOM Registration Link: bit.ly/MovSoc_Oct12
