When: Monday, May 18, 6:30PM*
Where: Caffe Medici on 2222-B Guadalupe*
Who: Dr. Gwen Sullivan*

How is the global financial crisis unfolding in impoverished communities around the world? How are households responding to the immediate impacts on their livelihoods and their access to basic goods and services? Dr. Gwen Sullivan will
locate local accounts of crisis within the broader story of inequality in
power and wealth in today’s global economy. She will draw on the preliminary findings of participatory researchers in six countries.

Gwen Sullivan teaches in the Global Understanding Program at St. Edward’s University. She is also a Research Fellow at the Institute of Latin American Studies at the University of Texas. Gwen lived and worked in Nicaragua during much of the 1980s and ‘90s. She received her doctorate from the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, UK.
