This will be the first in a series of conference-book projects to globalize civil sphere theory (CST). Examining the civil sphere in social settings outside the United States, these conferences will not only apply CST but creatively elaborate and revise it.

Organized by Jeffrey Alexander of Yale University and Carlo Tognato of Universidad Nacional de Colombia and generously funded by Corporación Visionarios por Colombia, Yale University’s Macmillan Center for International and Area Studies, The Center for Cultural Sociology at Yale University, and the Whitney Humanities Center, The Civil Sphere in Latin America conference will take place in New Haven, Connecticut, on June 24-25, 2016.

Special thanks to CCS Junior Fellow Anne Marie Champagne for her assistance with this project and event.
