LALS Hosts MA Symposium

On March 13, 2024, the Department of Latin American and Latino Studies hosted its annual MA Symposium highlighting our Master of Arts student's research projects.

For this event LALS tried a new format steering away from a presentation style symposium to a feedback-oriented format.

Presenters for this event were:


Alexander Paredes-Ruíz: "(Queering) Brown And Latinx Aesthetic & Performance: Migguel Anggelo’s Latinxoxo And Jesús I. Valles’ Bathhouse”

Algae Guzmán: "Talentos sin fronteras: Youth Performing and Negotiating Culture en el Valle Mágico”

Isabella Pereira Nikel: "The Colonial Virus: Art, memory and the ghosts of COVID-19 deaths in Brazil”

Adriana Soto: "Metamorphosis: A Journey to Latina Studies”

Anthony Sturino: "'Do Not Come:' The expanding and ever-shifting US border regime and the production of deterrence”

Katherine Quiroa: "Feminicide Chronicles in the Digital Age: Exploring How Femicide Ghosts are Discursively Framed”

Ema Pinto: "Navigating the Windy City: A Qualitative Study on Challenges Faced by Street Vendors in Chicago”

A big thank you for our discussants and participants for this amazing event.
