Eduardo Moncada is Assistant Professor of Political Science at Barnard College, Columbia University. His research agenda focuses on the politics of crime and violence in Latin America, urban politics, and subnational analysis. Moncada’s work has received support from the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation, the Ford Foundation, and the American Council of Learned Societies, among others. For this year's Wynia Speaker Series, he will present Resisting Extortion: Victims, Criminals, and Latin America.
THE WYNIA SPEAKER SERIES: Gary Wynia was the Kenan Professor of Political Science and former chair of the Political Science Department at Carleton. Widely recognized as one of the world’s top experts on Argentine politics, he was called upon by political leaders, among them former U.S. vice president Walter Mondale and former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, as well as academics for his views of that country’s politics. Upon his death in 2002, his widow Ann created a bequest to Carleton in Gary's name to endow an annual speaker on Latin American politics and political economy. The Wynia Speaker has been an annual event since 2004.
