About the Series
The Center for Latin American Studies, in partnership with the Department of Spanish & Portuguese, and the K'acha Willaykuna: Andean & Amazonia Indigenous Arts & Humanities Collaboration, is excited to host a series of virtual workshops on Epistemic Justice and Identidad y Pacha, presented by the Pachaysana Institute.
Throughout autumn semester, this series will help us explore and process the complex moments we're living in, as well as dream towards a better future. The schedule of events includes workshops and reflections after each session. The series is designed for ongoing participation throughout the semester, but attendees are not required to attend each session (although it is encouraged).
This workshop series is co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies, the Department of Spanish & Portuguese, and the K’acha Willaykuna: Andean & Amazonia Indigenous Arts & Humanities Collaboration, funded through the Global Arts and Humanities Discovery Theme.
