SIGN UP HERE TO BECOME A VISITOR SPEAKER

Are you a faculty member or graduate student who would like to share your research or expertise of Latin America with the community? If you are part of Latin American Studies or any of its affiliated departments, you can volunteer to serve as a Visitor Speaker and provide engaging presentations or demonstrations to K-16 classrooms and community organizations locally and around the country. It is a unique opportunity for Tulane faculty and scholars to practice their teaching skills while serving K-12 schools and the general community.

Becoming a Visitor Speaker should be part of everyone’s enrollment and participation in the Stone Center for Latin American studies. It is a chance for you to showcase your knowledge and expertise in your particular area of study, while helping an area classroom or community group learn more about the region.

In the past, speakers have discussed a wide array of subjects such as music and culture, Cuban drumming, the Mexican revolution, Capoeira Angola, etc. Visiting Speakers are generally utilized once or twice a semester and are always given three weeks advance notice. Presentations usually last about one hour.
