“Understanding the Many Faces of Latin America through Art and History: Race, Ethnicity, and Nationalism” was held during the last week of June on the UO campus. Fifteen middle and high school teachers were specially selected to attend this summer institute. They gained hands-on experience exploring the themes of race and ethnicity through history and art under the tutelage of a team of art and curriculum experts, including two artists from the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Spearheaded by the UO Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies (CLLAS) and the Latin American Studies Program (LAS), the institute took place at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (JSMA) under the direction of Dr. Lynn Stephen, UO anthropology professor and director of CLLAS. The institute was funded by a grant from the Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language (UISFL) Program, International Studies Division, of the U.S. Department of Education.
