About the Workshop

Workshop Description

The Workshop on Latin America and the Caribbean is an interdisciplinary forum and intellectual community for graduate students and faculty across the Humanities and Social Sciences who are interested in the literature, history, and politics of the region. The workshop welcomes participants who write and present in languages spoken in the region, Spanish, Portuguese, and French, in addition to English. In this multi-linguistic and inter-disciplinary space, PhD students, faculty, and invited guests are able to share research and discuss their work-in-progress with regional specialists from multiple departments across the University. Although regionally focused, the workshop also encourages hemispheric or transnational approaches that situate Latin American countries in their relationship with other places of the globe, including the U.S.


The workshop meets alternate Thursdays, 5:00-6:30 p.m., during the odd weeks of the quarter, in Kelly 114 (Center for Latin American Studies Conference Room). Meetings alternate with meetings of the Latin American History Workshop.
