Thinking Andean Studies: An Interdisciplinary Colloquium

Co-sponsored by the Educational Linguistics Division, Penn GSE

Allillanchu Philadelphia! Hello Philly!

On April 17-18, 2015 the University of Pennsylvania will host the event “Thinking Andean Studies”. This event is hoping to develop an interdisciplinary network of scholars working in the growing field of Andean Studies, as well as to help foster a mentoring relationship between established and emerging scholars. The event aims to provide a space for scholars to share their research through paper presentations and roundtable discussions, and hopes to showcase the increasing number of scholars in the US conducting research in and about the Andes.

In addition, the event also aims to connect scholarship with initiatives of indigenous language and Andean Culture advocates. In this spirit, a range of Quechua and Aymara advocates will present on topics that explore the intersections of indigenous languages of the Andes and media and activism, language pedagogy, literature, and community organizing.

The event is free and open to the public. You can check the whole program here.  Please, RVSP.

Streaming will be available!
