VI Graduate Student Conference on Latin America and the Caribbean: Imagining Culture, Past and Present

LASC logo
Special Events Room, McKeldin Library
Thursday, November 3, 2011 - 9:30 AM to Friday, November 4, 2011 - 5:00 PM

This conference seeks to further interdisciplinary conversation on the theme of culture, from the pre-colonial period to the present day.

Recent scholarship on Latin America has provided fresh takes on culture. Questioning monolithic views of the concept, scholars are asking how people imagine themselves simultaneously in relation to local, national, transnational, and global worlds.  They are also rethinking forms of analysis that separate culture from economics and politics. They are looking, for instance, at the role of culture in economic and political practices and institutions; at consumption as a site where economics and culture intersect; at the role of political and economic practices in shaping creativity and the arts. Other scholars are rethinking culture itself as an analytical concept and its relation to categories such as gender, race, class, and ethnicity.
