Andrés Bianchi, the Chilean ambassador to the United States, will be among the speakers at a Friday, May 6, colloquium in honor of Paul Sigmund, co-founder of the Program in Latin American Studies and professor of politics.
"Chile and the World" will run from 2:30 to 5 p.m. in Dodds Auditorium, Robertson Hall, and will be followed by a reception in the Shultz Dining Room. It also will feature presentations by several former graduate students, who now hold positions in higher education and government. Serving as moderators will be Princeton faculty members Nancy Bermeo and Deborah Yashar.
A specialist in political theory and Latin American politics, Sigmund has been a faculty member since 1963 and helped found the Program in Latin American Studies in 1966. He plans to transfer to emeritus status this July.
