Exhibit hall on the south side of the first floor of the Main Library

Latin America and the Caribbean is a region special for many reasons. Its rich culture, dynamic politics, and varied economies provide much space for study and engagement. However, as Peter Bakewell argues in “A History of Latin America,” what makes Latin America and the Caribbean a region unique from other parts of the world is its long history of cultural, political, racial, and ethnic mixing, otherwise known as mestizaje. Through more than 500 years of constant intermixing of different civilizations (broadly defined as Indigenous, European, African, and Asian), new types of societies have emerged, in different ways and with different features. The societies that inhabit these lands are a result of this mestizaje, whether genetic or cultural, which provides the basis for the ways in which politics work, their culture redefined, literary works created, languages spoken and written, and religions followed and practiced. Latin America and the Caribbean, is thus a true kaleidoscope of human civilizations, experiences, and histories, all brought together by that same diverse process of human interaction to achieve unity in diversity. In this exhibit you will see a very slim, but rare and sometimes unique, selection of the plethora of resources in our library collection. Stop by the exhibit hall on the south side of the first floor of the Main Library to learn more about these fascinating cultures.


101 International  Studies Building

IAN MIDDLETON, Ph.D. Student. Music


In this paper I present the rural music practice of tambora from Northern Colombia as central to practitioners' identification as non-violent. I show some of the ways in which it has become entwined with the formalization of music and dance education, and the public projection of peace, or the absence of violence, through music festivals in the region. I first consider how the group of people involved in tambora has expanded through the establishment of educational clubs where young people learn from older musicians. I also discuss a shift in repertoire which has accompanied this change, as children's music games have been adopted, or maintained, by adults. Second, I go on to consider the arguments of locals who claim that tambora festivals help minimise violence in the region by strengthening community identification, preventing the desertion of young people to armed groups, and allowing towns to present an image of non-violence. I end by showing three central ways in which, for people of the region, tambora bears significant associations with peace.

February 27 - March 1, 2014
Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Since the 1990s a “new mobilities paradigm” has crossed disciplinary boundaries to examine the broader social and political implications of movement, ranging from the scale of the body to the global. Human geographer Tim Cresswell points out three aspects that allow for a holistic understanding of mobility: “the fact of physical movement—getting from one place to another; the representations of movement that give it shared meaning; and finally, the experienced and embodied practice of movement”. The upcoming edition of the Louisiana Conference on Hispanic Languages and Literatures aims to explore the varied cultural and linguistic manifestations and interpretations of mobility that emerge in the Spanish-speaking world throughout history. We extend the call for essays that examine how movement or mobility is represented in art, literature, film, and performance; as well as how actual movement is involved in the creation, circulation, and reception of works. The field of linguistics is particularly tied to forms of mobility and presentations might explore issues of variation in time and/or space, sociolinguistic aspects of mobility, the language of written records, bilingualism, language maintenance, issues related to proficiency/nativity/hybridity, and language attitudes.
Proposal deadline:  Oct. 1, 2013
Contact information:  lsuchll2014@gmail.com
Additional information:
We invite abstracts for individual presentations or panels on any aspect of Hispanic linguistics, literature, or cultural studies; topics related to the conference theme are particularly welcome. Presentations may be delivered in English or Spanish. Abstracts should be no longer than 500 words in length and must be received on or before October 1, 2013. Abstracts may be submitted to: lsuchll2014@gmail.com. Panel proposals should include an abstract-length statement of vision for the panel as well as an individual abstract submitted separately by each proposed panelist. Additional information

FIEALC, (Federación Internacional de Estudios de América Latina y el Caribe) Congreso XVI “El viejo Mundo y el nuevo mundo en la era del dialogo”SubtemaVI Lengua, lingüística, literatura, arte y cultura: pasado y presente.Iconografías latinoamericanas: la ciudad y el campo como fuentes de representaciones y universos simbólicos
8, 9, 10 y 11 de octubre de 2013
Antalya, Turquía

Las fuentes iconográficas son nuevos objetos de estudios requeridos por las disciplinas históricas, sociales, humanas, filosóficas, semióticas, estéticas y otras, es decir “lecturas transdiciplinarias” (García Canclini) para realizar ingresos renovados a la realidad cultural de América latina y el Caribe.

La constitución de argumentaciones y en particular la organización de epistemologías desde matrices del “viejo mundo” en particular de las Bellas Artes con sus propuestas explicitadas en dibujos, pinturas, esculturas y arquitecturas crearon todo un ideario sobre la ciudad y el campo como fuente inspiracional a lo largo de estos últimos siglos en vastos y recónditos territorios.

Así también, las artes industriales con las tecnologías de la prensa, los archivos fotográficos, las propuestas del diseño y la organización del cine regional y de autor, han marcado las prácticas sobre la ciudad y el campo, en particular en las luchas sociales y la reivindicación popular.

En fin, las tipologías iconográficas en nuestro continente han dado consistencia a renovadores discursos sobre la identidad, el sentido de lo latinoamericano y en muchos casos han constituido trincheras representacionales y políticas precisas desde un acontecimiento urbano o de un hecho rural. Por lo mismo, las iconografías han producido “diálogos entre el viejo y el nuevo mundo”, así también han creado numerosos universos simbólicos que operan entre la subjetivación y la objetivación de tensados imaginarios culturales (N. Richard).

La imagen fija, la imagen en movimiento, el dibujo en papel, la pintura en lienzos, las esculturas en los espacios públicos, los estilos en la ciudad de los muertos o en la viva estructura urbana, los negativos fotográficos, los archivos fílmicos, los originales analógicos o los del mundo digital, son entradas direccionadas de la representación desde las “estructuras del sentimiento” (R.Williams) pues nos entregan una ciudad y ruralidad primeramente visualizada y soñada, pero sobre todo utópicamente amada.

Esta propuesta apunta a realizar un balance, rectificar omisiones de las “cultura mudas de América Latina y el Caribe” (P. Freire) y principalmente darle coherencia científica a este campo de resonancias que establecen múltiples exploraciones desde corpus consistentes que definen campos fecundos de acción analítica y crítica: una “ecología de saberes” (B de Sousa), un campo de identidades simbólicas precisas.

Proponemos una mesa establecida en cuatro matrices culturales:
  1. Idearios iconográficos de la ciudad y el campo del siglo XIX
  2. Políticas de las representaciones de la modernidad urbana/rural
  3. Análisis discursivos iconográficos entre la tradición y el progreso
  4. Nuevas transiconografías (hibridismos)

LASA is pleased to announce the eighth cycle of the Ford-LASA Special Projects competition, made possible by a contribution by the Ford Foundation to the LASA Endowment Fund. Funds provided will support such activities as transregional research initiatives, conferences, working groups, the development of curriculum and teaching resources, and similar projects organized and carried out by LASA Sections or by ad hoc groups of LASA members. Proposers are encouraged to think creatively about how this funding might be used to advance the principles of hemispheric collaboration among Latin American Studies scholars and teachers. Proposals that do not assign priority to this objective will not be considered for funding.
Proposals should identify the participants in the proposed activity, the objectives of the project, and the process by which those objectives are to be achieved. The total amount requested in each proposal may not exceed $12,500. Grants may be combined with other sources of funding, and may be used to initiate projects that continue with funding from other sources. No project or group will be funded more than once.
Proposals of no more than five (5) single-spaced pages in length must be received by the LASA Secretariat by September 15, 2013. Proposals will be reviewed by a panel of LASA members appointed by the President for each program cycle, chaired by the Vice President of LASA.
Preference will be given to projects that involve transregional collaboration in the Western Hemisphere, and which are intended to result in publication of project results. It may be possible for LASA to disseminate project results, including conference papers, through its website, which would not preclude eventual publication in other media. Project directors are encouraged to consider submitting a panel proposal based on their preliminary work for presentation at the May 2014 LASA Congress. By June 30, 2014, the project directors will be required to submit a report on the activities undertaken with Special Project funding, suitable for publication in the LASA Forum.

LASA is pleased to announce a competition for workshop and conference funds as part of the program of Mellon-LASA seminars, made possible through a generous grant to the Association by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. This program is intended to foster innovation in Latin American Studies and enrich LASA Congresses by supporting projects that reflect one or more of the following objectives:
  • Incorporate into Latin American Studies researchers, whose primary geographic focus is on other regions of the world, thus adding comparative or connective dimensions to Latin America-related work and/or introducing to the field methodological or analytical perspectives that have typically been applied elsewhere.
  • Challenge conventional geographic boundaries of Latin American Studies, for example by exploring opportunities for articulating research in terms of the Americas, the Atlantic, the Pacific Rim, or other geographic configurations.
  • Integrate into Latin American Studies theoretical and/or methodological perspectives drawn from state-of-the-art research in core disciplines of the social sciences and humanities.
Proposals that do not assign priority to one or more of these objectives will not be considered for funding. Preference will be given to projects that involve significant participation by researchers from Latin America; inclusion of junior scholars is encouraged. To be eligible for consideration, proposals must be submitted by a LASA member in good standing, but other participants in the project need not be members of the Association. Organizers of successful projects must convene a panel at the 2014 LASA meeting in Chicago, IL to present preliminary results of the initiative.
Proposals should identify the participants in the proposed workshop or conference, the objectives of the project, the process by which those objectives are to be achieved, and the anticipated calendar of activities. The total amount requested in each proposal may not exceed $15,000, devoted primarily to covering travel and per diem expenses for workshop participants. Of the project’s total budget, up to $1,500 may be allocated for travel of key participants to present results of the project at a Mellon-LASA panel convened during the May 2014 LASA Congress in Chicago, IL, and up to $1,500 may be reserved for publication support, including translation. Administrative and indirect costs will not be eligible. Grants may be combined with other sources of funding, and may be used to initiate projects that continue with funding from other sources.
This is an additional round of competitions for Mellon-LASA seminar grants. To be considered for this final round, the core project activities may take place either before or after the May 2014 LASA Congress in Chicago, IL. No project or group will be funded more than once through this program.
Proposals of no more than five (5) single-spaced pages in length, plus a one-page summary of the budget and one-page c.v.s of principal organizers, must be received by the LASA Secretariat by September 15, 2013. The narrative must make clear how the project will contribute to innovation in Latin American Studies by advancing one or more of the three objectives outlined above. Proposals will be evaluated by a peer review panel, and applicants will be informed of the results by October 30, 2013.
Note: given that most proposals are not likely to be funded, applicants who wish to convene a panel at the 2014 LASA Congress in Chicago, IL should also submit a proposal through the normal channels.
Within 18 months of the announcement of the award recipients, the project director(s) will be required to submit a report on the activities undertaken, suitable for publication in the LASA Forum.
