A lecture by Ivan Moraes Filho, director of the human rights organization Luiz Freire Cultural Center and graduate student at the Federal University of Pernambuco

#ocupeestelita or Occupy Estelita is a social movement that emerged in 2012 to oppose reckless urban growth in Recife, Northeastern Brazil. The movement opposes the plan to build twelve 40-story buildings in a historic downtown area in disregard of city regulations. Gathering a variety of civil society organizations and activists, #ocupeestelita was able to generate public debates and demands about political, media and urban reforms.

Tulane University tiene estrechos lazos con la región a través del Stone Center for Latin American Studies, the Latin American Library, y the Middle American Research Institute. Loyola University New Orleans se ha distinguido por el trabajo con las comunidades hispanas que realizan varias de sus unidades académicas, incluyendo the Law School y el Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies.

La organización de CILCA XXIII la realizan la Dra. Maureen Shea y el Dr. Uriel Quesada, expertos en literatura y cultura centroamericanas, con el apoyo del Dr. Jorge Román Lagunas, creador y promotor de CILCA.

La convocatoria será publicada en agosto 2014.
