The 9th Annual Conference of the Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Duke University 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. Featured events include: performances, art exhibit and live art demonstration, publication expo and a workshop for K-12 teachers.

The conference is free but registration is required: Register
