Social Justice and Cultural Self-Determination in Latin America and the Caribbean
The overall conference theme is Social Justice and Cultural Self-Determination in Latin America and the Caribbean. It will include a number of special sessions focused on indigeneity, self-governance and alternative knowledge production, related to the project on Hemispheric Indigeneity in Global Term supported through the Duke Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies with funding from the Mellon Partnerships in a Global Age program. This project is a collaboration with the UNC American Indian and Indigenous Studies program and the Center for Canadian Studies at Duke. Attention will be given principally to panels and individual proposals focusing on issues of (self) representation, identity, health and wellness, the environment, and the politics of knowledge.
