What Presidentialisation?  Presidentialisation of What?

The paper discusses the two main contributions to the debate about presidentialisation, namely the studies by Samuels/Shugart and Poguntke/Webb. It consists of two sections that summarize the main points of the two studies, highlighting strengths and weaknesses. Samuels and Shughart, so the argument goes, should consider moving away from the narrow focus on the separation of constitutional powers. Poguntke and Webb, on the other hand, are said to have the opposite problem in that they include too many explanatory factors. The author adds that considering the parties’ genetic features for example could be a valid argument to better measure this supposed widespread political phenomenon.

Gianluca Passarelli, Ph.D. in Comparative and European Politics from the University of Siena. Post doc fellow at the Department of Political Science, University of Bologna. He is also researcher of the Istituto Carlo Cattaneo and member of Itanes. His main research interests concern: presidents of the Republic, political parties, electoral systems, elections and electoral behavior.
Lunch will be provided.

Special Events & Monthly Calendar


The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) provides a calendar of events at the beginning of each month. It contains a variety of events, call for papers, job postings, etc.

Cuba has been reforming, or been at the brink of a reform period, perhaps since the revolution. With an aging leadership and now decades-long economic struggles, the pace of change, however, has finally accelerated. Today Cubans can open small businesses, travel abroad, access the internet, and purchase cell phones, microwaves, and (very expensive) new cars.

The annual Latin American Social and Public Policy conference features presentations on social and public policy research in Latin America by students from the University of Pittsburgh and other universities, with comments by University of Pittsburgh faculty.

Featuring music, food, dance, arts, crafts, and children's activities from Latin America and the Caribbean.

For 50 years, CLAS has been dedicated to supporting the study of Latin America's history, cultures, and societies and the continuing challenges and triumphs that the region has experienced. Its primary mission is to develop experts on Latin America who will apply their language skills and knowledge of the countries of the region in their professional careers.

Late Modernist Stages: Grupo Forja and the Workers’ Theatre on the Outskirts of São Paulo (1979-1985)

March 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Brazil Brown Bag Seminar Series invites you to its discussion titled, “Late Modernist Stages: Grupo Forja and the Workers’ Theatre on the Outskirts of São Paulo (1979-1985)” with Eduardo Luís Campos Lima, Fulbright Visiting Research Student, ILAS, Columbia University and PhD Student at University of São Paulo (Modern Languages Department).

In the final years of the Brazilian military dictatorship (1964-1985), the industrial outskirts of the city of Sao Paulo were a cauldron of new political ideas. The region saw the emergence of several popular theatre groups, which drew their social views from a wide range of rising trends – from Liberation Theology to the new labor movement. The most important troupe was Teatro Forja, created as a theatrical branch of the Metalworkers Union of Sao Bernardo do Campo. The confluence of workers with a rural background, activists of new political strands and formally trained artists resulted in a late blooming of Latin American Popular Theatre in poor neighborhoods of the metropolitan area of Sao Paulo. Campos Lima’s goal is to discuss the aesthetic and political perspectives of this theatrical movement.


Eduardo Luís Campos Lima holds a degree in Journalism and a MA in American and Brazilian dramaturgy (both from Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil). Among his publications is the book Coisas de Jornal no Teatro (Expressão Popular: São Paulo, 2014), about the Living Newspaper theatre in the United States and in Brazil. He is currently a PhD student at Universidade de São Paulo and a Fulbright Visiting Research Student at Columbia University.
