The Centenary of the Famous 41: Sexuality and Social Control in Latin America, 1901, November 15-17, 2001

On November 17, 1901, Mexico City police raided a private party, arresting its 41 attendees, all men, many of them dressed as women. The resulting scandal incited an explosion of the nascent discourse on homosexuality in Mexico at a time when, throughout Latin America, decadent modernist poets and naturalist novelists, positivist criminologists and psychiatrists, scandal sheet journalists and illustrators, along with their readers, had become fascinated with issues of sexuality.

17th Annual Meeting of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies: Reaching Underserved Trauma Survivors Through Community- Based Programs, December 6-9, 2001

The 2001 Annual Meeting of the ISTSS in New Orleans will focus on reaching underserved trauma survivors through community-based programs. A major aim of the meeting is to feature and encourage collaborations at all levels. This effort will further our scientific and applied knowledge toward the goals of preventing and reducing exposure to traumatic experiences and of improving the lives of trauma survivors worldwide.

The current epidemic of trauma on every continent demands a better understanding of those community-based trauma interventions that are most effective for preventing and ameliorating the impact of traumatic exposure among large groups of survivors. How best to deliver these services, given the context of myriad obstacles that typically confront both trauma survivors and those who attempt to serve them, are important issues that need to be addressed. Such knowledge necessarily comes from collaborations between community-based service providers, researchers, advocates, policymakers, and trauma survivors themselves. The events of September 11th will be highlighted.

Program Application
Application Deadline: March 2, 2018

Tulane University’s Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the Cuban and Caribbean Studies Institute at Tulane University join forces with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies to take K-16 educators to Cuba. This is our fourth year running the Cuban Culture & Society K-16 Educator Institute and we are excited about this year’s itinerary. The institute will approach Cuban society and culture form a multidisciplinary perspective focused on the arts, the geography, and history of the country. Innovative programming and annual summer teacher institutes over the past three years provide the benefits of an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and studying the region. Taking advantage of Tulane’s relationship with the University of Havana and Cuba’s National Union of Writers and Artists, the institute equips teachers with multidisciplinary content, curricular resources, and methods of inquiry for developing that approach in their K-16 classrooms. Conducted in English by Professor Carolina Caballero, the institute will explore current trends and issues in Cuban culture and society through readings, films, and lectures. The program includes a series of talks by prominent Cuban intellectuals and local field trips to important political and cultural sights throughout Havana.

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.

The trip will include a pre-departure orientation and two weeks in Cuba. The institute incorporates visits to local museums and exposes participants to arts organizations, schools, and teachers from the country’s national literacy campaign. Participants will stay within walking distance of the Malecón, the university, and many cultural venues.
