March 2-8, 2015


The graduate minor in Latin American Studies will require the student to complete 12 graduate hours; 8 of the hours must be at the 500-level.
    • Area Coursework: A minimum of 8 graduate hours at the 400/500-level from courses in two different departments approved by CLACS every semester.
    • The Center updates and posts approved courses in our website and announce them through our listserv. Our Center has approximately 104 faculty affiliated from different departments in campus, and we approve their courses as part of our curriculum. The Center will record the approved courses on a master list to be kept in the unit that will be used to certify that students took approved courses during their studies in the minor.
    • Language Component: At least 4 hours in language coursework taken in any Latin American language (Portuguese, Spanish or Native American Language or Haitian Creole) while enrolled in the Graduate Minor program.
    • In the case that not enough or advance language courses are offered, The Center also accepts as equivalent area courses taught in these languages, i.e. literature class taught in Portuguese or Spanish.
    • If the chosen language course is at the 400-or 500 level it may count towards the required 12 hours for Graduate Minor. We anticipate that students registering in the Minor already have knowledge of Latin American language.
    • If the Student's Master's thesis or doctoral dissertation deals with a country from Latin America and the Caribbean, we advise students in this minor to speak with their advisor about including a committee member from the minor area.
    • We recommend that the courses taken for the minor not be applied to course requirements in the students' Master's or PhD program

Antonio SotomayorLatin American and Caribbean Studies Librarian, will be holding office hours in CLACS every Thursday this semester from 3:00pm to 4:00pm in room 200, ISB.
If you have any questions about the research process, finding sources, literature review, exploring a potential research topic, starting a paper, or anything else involving research, the library, and Latin American and Caribbean Studies, please stop by the International Studies Building room 200 on a Thursday, 3:00-4:00pm. If these hours do not work for you, just send me an e-mail and we’ll find another time to meet. 

·         8-WEEK COURSE
The class begins March 16, and will meet 3 days per week on MWF, 12 pm-1:50 pm.

This is an exciting course that will challenge common stereotypes, myths, and misconceptions about the Iberian powers. In the modern popular imagination, the Black Legend has never completely abated. Beginning in the sixteenth century, Northern European powers started a discourse that labeled Spain and Portugal as the cruelest, most intolerant empires that successfully stomped out religious and political dissent wherever they encountered it, thereby providing other European empires (including the English, the Dutch, and the French) with a discursive avenue to justify their own imperial endeavors around the world. Not only did they assert that Spain and Portugal were cruel and intolerant, but these same Northern Europeans contended that the Iberian powers were backward and non-progressive and that its people were lazy and non-productive.
This Black Legend discourse continues to today, and is rife in popular culture, popular histories, and in Northern European political discourse on Southern Europe. Indeed, one does not have to look further than films and books such as Harry Potter or Monty Python and the Holy Grail to find pop culture references to the Black Legend. Additionally, as the financial crisis continues to grip the European continent, Germans and Northern Europeans from the rich countries of the European Union continue to create a strong contrast between the “industrious” workers of Northern Europe and the “lazy,” “inefficient” ones from Southern Europe. This, of course, is employed to “other” Iberia vis-à-vis the rest of Europe, as well as to justify Northern Europe’s continued hegemony over the financially insecure nations of Southern Europe. Indeed, the Black Legend discourse continues to serve as a powerful tool used to subjugate and control.
In this course, students will not only learn to appreciate Spanish and Portuguese history in and of itself, but will also gain better insights into these above issues that continue to effect Spain and Portugal today. Students interested in such themes as the history of science, labor history, conquest and colonialism, women and gender, cultural history, political history, etc. will enjoy this class.

VIRGINIA ZAVALA, Linguistics. Catholic University Lima, Peru and Tinker Visiting Professor at University of Wisconsin, Madison


This talk will be based on ethnographic research about a language policy favoring Quechua in the Apurímac region of the southern Peruvian Andes, which was developed in the context of the decentralization of the central government, which started in 2000. At the level of official policy documents, the region is being imagined as a community of Apurimenians unified by the local language, which creates an emotional identification with the region. In this talk, I will analyze the power relationships that are constructed between a community of practice of Quechua “experts” (or Quechua yachaq) and the rest of Quechua-speaking people from Apurímac. Although the declared wish of both is to build a regional “us”, Quechua experts interpret and negotiate the language policy from particular language and literacy ideologies and end up establishing identity divisions between “us” and “them” through tactics of intersubjectivity based on difference, authority and authenticity (Bucholtz 2003). This work follows earlier studies about language ideological battles in relation to Quechua and shows that, after several decades, the former top-down language policies coming from the capital city are now being reproduced within the Quechua-speaking social actors themselves, and the conflict has
diversified into new dilemmas.
Prof Zavala holds a PhD in Sociolinguistics from Georgetown University. She is the director of the M.A. program of Linsguistics at the Catholic University of Peru, Lima.

IAN READ, Associate professor of Latin American Studies. Soka University of America

This book-length project argues that changing transportation technology and oceanic movements of goods and peoples inserted Brazilians into circuits of unfamiliar, epidemic diseases that had been previously confined to the North Atlantic.
Beginning in 1849 and lasting for five decades, public health worsened because of plagues, even though many endemic causes of death declined.
Not until more powerful state governments were created with the new Republic could Brazil's wealthier states begin to manage more effective public health programs and policies. 
Brazil's "era of epidemics" and state's response to epidemic disease in during this period had a deeper influence than historians have realized and helped shape the more populated, urban, and regionally unequal country Brazil has become.

Ian Read (Ph.D, 2006, Stanford University) is Associate Professor of Latin American Studies at Soka University of America, where he has taught since 2008.  
He is author of The Hierarchies of Slavery in Santos, Brazil, 1822-1888 (Stanford University Press, 2012).  
His research has been divided between two overlapping research areas, the history of slavery and the history of disease and medicine in Brazil. 
The first area produced "Off the Block but in the Neighborhood:  Local Slave Trading in São Paulo" (Slavery and Abolition, March 2012) and "Sickness and Recovery among the Enslaved and Free of Santos County Brazil, 1860-1880" (The Americas, June 2008).  In the second area of research, he wrote "A Triumphant Decline? Tetanus among Slaves and Freeborn in Brazil" (História, Ciências, Saúde - Manguinho, December 2012)
and is at work on a book-long project exploring the causes and consequences of Brazil's "era of epidemics" (1849-1909).



12-1:00pm (lunch provided)
 La Casa Cultural Latina, 1203 W. Nevada

Guest speakers:
Eduin Perez Fraga, Cuban artist
Christn DePouw, Assistant Professor of Education, University of Wisconsin-Green Bay

Through Fraga's paintings and collages, we will discuss the economic and political systems in Cuba and their impacts on the Cuban people. Fraga's art employs Cuban newspapers within the paintings in order to expose the contradictions and struggles of the average Cuban. Further, he does this with complexity and nuance so as to avoid the rigid polarization of viewpoints that are so typical in discussions of Cuba. Dr. DePouw will talk about the implications of recent changes in relations between the U.S. and Cuba, and how these changes can be read within the context of a long history of U.S. imperialism and anti-Communism in addition to a more current embrace of neoliberalism.
7:OOpm, Tuesday, March 10 @ La Casa Cultural Latina

  1. All of that though remains to be seentop10-bestvpn It is unclear right now how Opera will use the products that they will undoubtedly gain through this acquisition of SurfEasy Whether Opera decides to spin off some of the technology and practices that they gain through soaking up SurfEasy, or if they simply apply them to businesses and areas where Opera is already thriving – it will be a clear advantage for the company moving forward
