Hall Center: Latin American Seminar - Fall 2012

The Latin American Seminar takes a different regional or topical focus every one or two years within the larger Latin American context, and with an interdisciplinary approach. The ongoing seminar will feature scholarship in the humanities as well as the social and physical sciences. KU faculty and graduate students who would like to present a paper in the seminar or want to suggest a speaker should contact Geraldo de Sousa (Acting Director of Latin American & Caribbean Studies, 864-1126, sousa@ku.edu).

Seminars are open to all graduate students, faculty and staff of the University of Kansas and their guests. All seminars meet in the Hall Center Seminar Room unless otherwise noted. No prior registration is required.

The seminar explores the regional, topical, and methodological research strengths and concerns of the KU Latin Americanist faculty and graduate students. The 2011-2012 theme, "Latin American Indigenous Identity in the Global Diaspora," focuses on how indigenous peoples are reshaping their identities in a transnational world.
