UNC - DUKE Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies Conference


Each spring, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University Consortium in Latin American Studies sponsors an academic conference inviting Duke and UNC graduate students, faculty, and national and international visiting scholars to participate.



Revising Visions of Latin America & the Caribbean


This year the conference will be dedicated to revising and renewing the diverse visions scholars and artists take when developing research and cultural projects embedded in the complex realities—past and present—of Latin America and the Caribbean.  Questioning and affirming existing models of how we understand this region, from a wide spectrum of disciplines, will encourage the production of new knowledge and cultural expression.  Attention will be given principally to new ways of understanding indigeneity and cosmopolitanism, economic development, security, global health, historical narratives, political theory, and popular sensibilities through aesthetic production.
