|Leonardo Rodríguez Pérez|
Leonardo Rodríguez Pérez is a graduate of the Universidad Industrial de Santander in Colombia where he studied the history of 19th century Colombia. He was member of a research group led by Professor Armando Marnitez Garnica, appointed to carry out research on liberal reforms in Colombia in the second half of the nineteenth century.
Leonardo Rodríguez Pérez then earned a Masters in History at Limoges University, specialising in the French 19th century and a Masters in foreign societies and International Relations from the Sorbonne University in Paris I. His interest in political history of the 19th century, both French and Colombian, is combined with an interest in statistical analysis of texts (lexicometry).
With a particular interest in the history of political concepts, Leonardo Rodríguez Pérez is currently leaning towards contemporary political history. For his PhD, begun at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva in Geneva, he would like to carry out an analysis of political discourse of the Colombian Indian movement from 1970-2000. In Geneva, he relies on the expertise accumulated following the merger of two former Institutes in International Studies and in Development Studies; an ideal environment to carry out a study which focuses on both politics and what is at stake in a developing Latin-American society.
