What do protests, roadblocks, hunger strikes, calls for indigenous autonomy and ethnic based demands in Latin America represent? What do they fight for, how and why, with what impact? Come find out more about this incredibly current topic in an informal dialogue among faculty and students with visiting speaker from Chile, Christian Martínez Neira, author of several books and articles on indigenous autonomy and representation in Chile, Mexico, and Latin America in general. IC faculty members working on this research area will also give short presentation of their work in Colombia, Bolivia, Chile, and others.

Co sponsored by Latin American Studies, Politics, and the Center for Faculty Excellence.
