Self determination and autonomy have been central struggles for Indigenous cultures around the world for ages. The 41st Annual Congress of the Canadian Association for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS) to be held at UBC’s Okanagan campus Friday May 18 to Sunday May 20 will bring those issues into focus.
Attending from more than 20 countries, scholars from across the social sciences and the humanities, as well as activists and artists, will reconsider notions of place and mobility in Latin America and the Caribbean.
The conference, Between Indigeneity and the Transnational: Place and Mobility in Latin America and the Caribbean, is hosted this year by the Latin American and Iberian Studies program in the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
