Thanks to all who joined us for last night's reading and discussion with Alfredo Corchado and David Brooks about Corchado's new book, Midnight in Mexico. It was a fantastic event, with lively discussion about immigration, journalism, and drug policy in Mexico and the United States. For those of you who missed it, we will be posting a recording of the event online in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!
In other news, our summer issue "Chavismo After Chávez: What was Created? What Remains?" has shipped and is now available online! This issue explores what Chavismo was all about. The articles in the Report section provide analysis and discussion on the institutional structures that were created under Chávez and what they might become following his death and the election of Nicolás Maduro.
In this issue we are also excited to showcase the works of Leandro Viana, a Brazilian documentary photographer based in New York. His series Bolivia in São Paolo beautifully documents Bolivian migration in São Paulo and was awarded the 2011 Conrado Wessel Award in Brazil and was featured at the Chobi Mela International Festival of Photography in January 2013. NACLA has partnered with Viana to bring you limited edition prints from his series, which you can purchase here. Proceeds benefit both NACLA and the artist.
