Hall Center: Latin American Seminar - Spring 2011

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.

Spring 2011 Schedule

The 2010-2011 theme on Latin American migration to the US and Kansas focuses on our country's ongoing demographic transformations in which Hispanics are now the largest minority. The issues of cultural and national identity of Latinos in the US, including their indigenous roots, and their potential citizenship and rights here raise important humanistic and philosophical questions. The seminar will investigate the contradictory history of Latino migration and contributions to the US (through military service, employment, taxes, music and art). For more information contact Marta Caminero-Santangelo (English, camsan@ku.edu), Peter Herlihy (LAS/Geography, herlihy@ku.edu), Elizabeth Kuznesof (LAS/History, kuznesof@ku.edu), or Brent Metz (Anthropology, bmetz@ku.edu).
