The first session will focus on Venezuela´s oil culture in the 20th century and will connect the development of the petrostate to current extractivist projects. It will also reveal the links between the international and the domestic arenas in extractivist societies like Venezuela in order to understand how plans for economic transformation evolve in those countries.

 Speakers: Gianfranco Selgas de Silvi (University College London) & Luíza Cerioli (University of Kassel)

Moderator: Lisa Couderé (MO* magazine, Mundana)
