John Edward Heaton's Guatemala: A Photographic Exhibit

View Full Event Description

John Edward Heaton’s Guatemala, a photographic exhibit will be on display at The Latin American Library, Tulane University, March 17-May 27.
We are honored to be the first venue in North America to show this exhibit, which debuted in the fall of 2015 in Paris at the Maison Européene de la Photographie, Paris’ main museum for photography.
John Edward Heaton’s work documents the fascinating worlds of Guatemala. He has spent 35 years immersed as aphotographer, environmentalist, visual anthropologist, cultural entrepreneur, and curious witness to this Central American nation, among the most historically rich and complex nations of Latin America. Occupying the space between historical documentary and fine art, Heaton’s stunning photographs capture the ironies and poignancy of Guatemala and its people with a penetrating gaze that is nonetheless thoroughly engaged, sympathetic and not without a good dose of humor. The Latin American Library was one of the first to collect Heaton’s published work in 2011. Recognizing and acquiring historically important publications in a timely way allows us to bring to the Tulane campus exhibitions like Heaton’s that usually tour only at large museums.

Summer Educator Institute in Cuba

View Full Event Description

Havana, Cuba | June 18 – July 2, 2016

Application Deadline: March 28, 2016
TO REGISTER, PLEASE CLICK HERE TO READ MORE ABOUT THE PROGRAM AND APPLY

This two-week program provides the unique opportunity to work on developing lesson plans while exploring the sights and sounds of a nation and country that remain obscured behind political rhetoric and misinformation. Recent economic changes on the island have provoked a series of social and cultural transformations that have left Cubans and the entire world wondering what could be next for the island and the Revolution. Don’t miss the chance to witness some of these challenges and triumphs firsthand and get the opportunity to bring your experience back to your students in the classroom.

Tulane’s summer program is locally sponsored and supported by the National Union of Writers and Artists. Participants will stay within walking distance of the Malecón, the university, and several cultural venues. In addition to field trips in Havana, there will also be group excursions to the historic cities of Trinidad and Cienfuegos, the Che Guevara monument in Santa Clara, Playa Girón, and Viñales.
