Each year, CLACS hosts over 100 events that are free and open to the public. These Latin America and Caribbean-themed events range from film screenings to lecture series, art exhibits to book readings. Most of our events are followed by a reception, where students, faculty, and community members have the opportunity to connect and discuss. CLACS events are listed on the events page of the CLACS website, the CLACS google calendar, and are also highlighted on the CLACS Facebook page.
You can receive emails about CLACS events that match your interests by signing up for a CLACS email list. CLACS offers more than 20 unique email lists, each focused on a region or topic. You can subscribe to any email list by entering your email on the CLACS homepage, or through this link to our email management system. Some of the email list options include a weekly digest of all events, K-12 Outreach Program, thematic – such as race and gender, or regional – such as the Andes or the Caribbean.
This semester, CLACS is hosting several extra-exciting events. The Spring 2012 CLACS Research Colloquium focuses on “Latin American Independence in the Age of Revolution,” and features lectures on current research in the area. Scholars such as Robin Blackburn and Sara Johnson are among the list of esteemed speakers. From March 22 through April 11, CLACS and ILAS will host Mundos Andinos, an event series pertaining to the Andean region (details to follow – watch the CLACS website). And on March 26th CLACS will have a screening of the film Granito: How to Nail a Dictator, about human rights abuses in Guatemala, followed by a discussion with Pamela Yates, Paco de Onís, and NYU Historian Greg Grandin.
