Professor Diego Sánchez- Ancochea, St. Antony’s College, then Associate Professor in the Political Economy of Latin America and now Professor of the Political Economy of Development visited us three years ago.
Diego was here to encourage Mexican students to attend the Latin American Centre and the University of Oxford more generally. We had drinks and a great gathering at Piso 51 with him and Professor Timothy Power.
He was then Director of the Latin American Centre at St Antony’s College, a position he held until 2018. Professor Diego Sánchez-Ancochea was nominated Head of the Oxford Department of International Development after spending a leave of absence at the University of Notre Dame, Indiana working on a new book on the lessons that Latin America can provide to the rest of the world.
