Charla Series at UNO Continues Nov. 16
Omaha - The Office of Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS) at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) will host the next installment in its Charla series Wednesday, Nov. 16, on campus.
"Castro, Chavez, Fox and Lula: Changing Faces of Latin American Regimes?" will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Council Room. The event is free and open to the public.
"In the aftermath of a very contentious Summit of the Americas this past week in which at least two competing visions of U.S.-Latin American economic integration were articulated by some of these leaders, informed discussions of this type become increasingly critical," said Lourdes Gouveia, OLLAS director and a professor of sociology at UNO. "As a premier center concerned with Latin American issues, not only at UNO, but regionally, we at OLLAS feel a responsibility to further enhance our engagement with the region through our Latino/Latin American Studies program."
The scheduled speakers include Gouveia; Gustavo Cano, a faculty fellow in OLLAS and the UNO Department of Political Science; and Jonathan Benjamin-Alvarado, OLLAS assistant director and associate professor of political science at UNO.
"Charla" is the Spanish term for a conversation or chat. Funding for this event is provided in part by the U.S. Department of Education. Refreshments will be served.
