The substantial body of literature addresses the growth of transnational regulatory networks that purport to foster learning, legitimacy, and coordination among national regulatory agencies. But network membership is neither universal nor well understood. Are regulators more likely to go abroad when they are vulnerable to domestic political pressure, or when their independence and influence are intact?

The Center for Scholars, the Department of French and Italian, and the Linguistics Program of Tulane University cordially invite you to attend a lecture in French by a distinguished specialist on the family of Tupi-Guarani languages.
Dr. Françoise Grenand is an anthropologist and Emeritus Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS, French National Research Council) of France. She is renowned for her pioneering work on the vocabulary of Wayãpi and other indigenous languages in French Guiana and elsewhere in lowland South America, including Brazil. Dr. Grenand will lecture on Tupi-Guarani languages and vocabularies based on her many years of research among the Wayãpi people of French Guiana. She will present a Powerpoint in English to accompany her lecture, which will be delivered in French.
Au cours de leur histoire, de nombreux peuples ont migré, emportant avec eux leur langue, trésor précieux et fragile. Découvrant des écosystèmes inédits, ils ont dû s'adapter et intégrer dans leur langue des mots nouveaux pour nommer les entités nouvelles. Prenant l'exemple des peuples Tupi-Guarani d'Amérique du Sud, la présente conférence entend expliquer leur démarche dans les lexiques zoologiques et botaniques. Des termes immotivés sont les témoins précieux des migrations anciennes. Des termes motivés descripteurs restent souvent neutres et de moindre portée. Motivés ou non, un certain nombre de termes, porteurs d’une grande charge sociétale, sont intéressants dans la comparaison linguistique et culturelle.

Hope to see you there.
"La primera Guerra mundial como evento latinoamericano: Modernismo, cosmopolitismo y distancia afectiva"
Resumen: ¿Se puede considerar a la primera guerra mundial como un conflicto latinoamericano? Cuando abordamos esta pregunta en apariencia irrisoria desde la perspectiva de la historia literaria y cultural, emerge un archivo latinoamericano de experimentos estéticos sobre la guerra que interroga su mundialidad y el lugar de la cultura latinoamericana en el contexto de la globalización de la cultura moderna, De Darío a Nervo, de Gómez Carrillo a Alejandro Sux, muchos escritores modernistas presenciaron la guerra desde muy cerca y desde muy lejos, pero siempre tratando de achicar la distancia geopolítica que los separaba de la escena bélica a partir de una compleja identificación discursiva con la empresa de los aliados. Esta necesidad de suturar la distancia que los separa de las trincheras del frente occidental pone en evidencia el campo de fuerzas simbólicas y afectivas que se constituye a partir de los intentos de los modernistas por inscribir su proyecto estético en un escenario transcultural que ellos mismos invisten con significantes universales.
