Visit of Professor Armando Cisneros Sosa

24 March 2017


Professor Armando Cisneros Sosa, is professor in the Department of Sociology, Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Mexico City, where he is also the Coordinator of the Sociology of Culture Group and a member of the Sociological Theory cluster.

He is a distinguished sociologist who has also studied and published on Mexico’s urban history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. His key interests, however, are in social movements-state relationships, civil disobedience, democratic transition, and political legitimacy during Mexico’s period of transition in the late twentieth century. His work integrates empirical research with the sociological theory of John Rawls. He has published widely in these areas, principally, El sentido del espacio/The Sense of Space (2006), Introduccion Al Mundo De Octavio Paz (2008), and Guerra de Hidalgo (2011). His current project continues this line of scholarly enquiry into the “Movimientos Sociales en América Latina”.

Professor Cisneros Sosa will deliver two lectures during his visit.
