Guerrero Viejo: Viejo Guerrero
The Consulate of Mexico and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies at Tulane University are sponsoring a photographic exhibition by Everardo Castro Medellion entitled “Guerro Viejo: Viejo Guerrero: The Sacrifice of a People who Disseminated Life all Around.” The exhibit is on display at the Consulate of Mexico Art Gallery, 901 Convention Center Blvd. Suite 118.

An opening reception will take place on December 13th at 6:00PM.
Rebel Film Screening and Discussion
The Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art are hosting a screening of the film Rebel on January 17th. Research for the film, written and directed by María Agui Carter, was conducted in 2002-2003 while Agui Carter was a Rockefeller Fellow at the Stone Center.
Rebel explores the Secret Life of Loreta Velazquez, New Orleans Cuban immigrant and Confederate Soldier turned Union Spy. Shrouded in mystery and long the subject of debate, the story of Loreta Velazquez is one of the Civil War's most gripping forgotten narratives. Loreta Janeta Velazquez, a Cuban immigrant raised in New Orleans' French Quarter, was one of the estimated 1000 women who secretly served as soldiers during the American Civil War. Who was she? Why did she fight? And what made her so dangerous that she has been virtually erased from history?
Actors and historians bring Velazquez’ story to life in this beautifully directed documentary, weaving drama and animation with historical and archival material to unravel the mystery of this secret soldier in a riveting detective story about a woman, a myth, and the politics of national memory.
The film will be introduced by Tulane Professor and Latin American film scholar Ana Lopez and will conclude with a Q & A session with María Agui Carter.
Please contact the Latin American Resource Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Ogden at email@example.com with questions or for more information.
Tulane Maya Symposium Teacher Workshop: On the Maya Trail: Ancient Travelers, Epic Voyages
The Stone Center for Latin American Studies, the Middle American Research Institute, and the Audubon Aquarium are joining together to sponsor a K-12 teacher workshop in the conjunction with the 11th annual Tulane Maya Symposium. This year the workshop will be held at the Audubon Aquarium in New Orleans, in celebration of the opening of a new exhibit on reefs in the Maya area. The workshop will focus on the symposium theme: traveling and voyages among the Maya. The workshop will integrate information about the geography and environment of the Maya area and the ancient and modern Maya utilization of environmental resources. The resources discussed will provide a great way for teachers working with the Common Core requirements to integrate information about the Maya into discussions of a variety of topics!
This year the teacher workshop will begin on Thursday evening, March 20th, with a special reception and talk at the Aquarium specifically for teachers. The main component of the workshop will take place on Friday, March 21st. For more information and to register, please visit the symposium website.
Eleventh Annual Maya Symposium: On the Maya Trail: Ancient Travelers, Epic Voyages
The Middle American Research Institute and Far Horizons, in collaboration with Tulane’s Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the New Orleans Museum of Art, are proud to present the Eleventh Annual Tulane Maya Symposium and Workshop. This year's symposium, titled "On the Maya Trail: Ancient Travelers, Epic Voyages," will explore the many ways the ancient Maya moved across their landscape, whether for the sake of diplomacy, conquest, commerce, migration, or pilgrimage. The point of the symposium is to emphasize how integral long-distance communication was to ancient Maya society throughout its long history. This year's Maya Symposium will incorporate a wide variety of specialties such as archaeology, art history, cultural anthropology, epigraphy, history, and linguistics to explore the research being conducted on the ancient Maya civilization.
The keynote address will be given by Dr. Karl Taube of the University of California, Riverside who will guide us through the rich world of Mesoamerican art. We will also host a viewing of the Precolumbian collection at NOMA. On Sunday, the Hieroglyphic Forum and the Workshops will focus on the role of women travelers in the Classic Maya civilization. Finally, throughout the weekend, we will also be featuring MARI’s exhibit, “Faces of the Maya.”
