James Counts Early, Director, Cultural Heritage Policy, Smithsonian Institution

The financial crash in the United States and the economic "push and pull" factors of migration, immigration, and transnational cultural identity have sparked new conservative and radical perspectives on social movements and participatory cultural democracy. Across the ideological and political spectrum there are growing challenges to the status-quo, including the Tea Party Movement in the U.S. and new democracy movements among Latinos. Dr. Early will examine the nexus of participatory democracy and pluralist socialist movements that have altered the state of national politics and cultural identity in Latin American and the U.S.
