2014 Call for Faculty Grants
In order to encourage existing projects and collaborations and to facilitate new ones, CLLAS announces its fifth annual round of small grant competitions for funds to be used during the 2014-2015 academic year (July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015). We expect to disburse two to three grants for $2,000 to $3,000 each. These grants are specifically intended to support research that fits within the CLLAS mission. Projects that include collaboration between UO units, involve the wider Eugene/Springfield, Oregon, or Latin American communities/organizations/institutions, or propose other forms of community engagement are particularly welcome. In recognition of the fact that not all disciplines include collaborative models of research, such as fields within the humanities, CLLAS will consider projects that involve nontraditional forms of collaboration and/or community engagement. We are especially interested in projects that have the potential to put Latino and Latin American Studies into conversation with one another.

Border Film Week – Events at the University of San Diego
Journalism professor and CLLAS advisory board member Gabriela Martínez has been invited to screen her documentary Keep Your Eyes On Guatemala for the Border Film Week Series organized by the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice at the University of San Diego. The documentary will be screened on March 26 and Martínez will attend the screening and do Q/A.
Keep Your Eyes On Guatemala (RT 54 min.) tells the story of Guatemala’s National Police Historical Archive (Archivo Histórico de la Policia Nacional—AHPN) intertwined with narratives of past human rights abuses and the dramatic effects they had on specific individuals and the nation as a whole. In addition, it highlights present-day efforts to preserve collective memories and bring justice and reconciliation to the country.
The film is the result of a collaboration between academic units at the University of Oregon and AHPN. With funding support from the Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC), and other campus units, Carlos Aguirre and Gabriela Martínez (associate professor, UO School of Journalism and Communication), are heading up a series of projects for UO. › Continue reading

A presentation by Rodrigo Gómez
To understand the Latin American arena of media policies, one must understand the control powerful media groups have had on media systems and their strong ties to authoritarian regimes and dictatorships-, which have shaped the weak practices of public broadcasting. Today, Latin America is reshaping its communication systems to give meaning to the changes, challenges and struggles that are happening in different regions.
