Dear colleagues:

The Latin American Studies Program and the Center for Latino/a and Latin American Studies cordially invite you to a public roundtable on “The Future of Latin American and Latino Studies in the U.S.,” with the participation of prominent scholars in the field. Our speakers will discuss the place of Latin American and Latino Studies within a rapidly changing U.S. political, cultural, demographic, and linguistic scenario and a growing trend towards “global studies” in academia. This conversation should be of interest for faculty and students in International Studies, Ethnic Studies, Romance Languages, Geography, Education, and other humanities and social sciences disciplines.

The event will take place on Friday, March 1, at 3:30 pm (Browsing Room, Knight Library).

The following scholars will be joining us:

  • Lorraine Bayard de Volo, [1]Director, Latin American Studies Center, University of Colorado, Boulder
  • Rebecca Horn [2], Director, Latin American Studies Program, University of Utah
  • Rodolfo Dirzo, [3]Director, Center for Latin American Studies, Stanford University
  • Kevin Terraciano [4], Director, Latin American Institute, University of California, Los Angeles
