As part of the Colloquium Series in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, this Spanish-language workshop will link the traditions, practices, and oral memory of Andean peoples to our current lived realities, and puts theory to practice by offering tools that help us engage the natural world and our communities with new perspectives. It explores what it means to live in a llakta (territory), to be part of an ayllu (family and community), and to envision how we relate to pacha (cosmos), as well as how to develop a greater understanding of our roles as runa, or the (human) beings that embody these diverse concepts through practice. The aim is to rediscover our interconnectedness and practice putting these principles into action.
