The Department of Sociology Colloquium

“Foresight methods as transnational interventions: mapping a field of practice”

The Stone Center’s annual TUSCLA conference is an interdisciplinary student symposium in which seniors from the Latin American Studies undergraduate core seminar, first-year graduate students in the graduate Latin American Studies core seminar and undergraduates in Newcomb-Tulane College conducting original research on Latin America present their individual research projects. TUSCLA was formally launched as TUCLA in Fall of 2003 as a means to provide Latin American Studies undergraduates with an opportunity to present papers in the style and atmosphere of an academic conference.

This collaborative workshop is designed for middle to high school Social Studies educators to enhance the teaching of the Tunica community while highlighting this group as part of a series of ancient civilizations currently taught at the K-12 level. This workshop is the first one in the series aimed at increasing and extending the current teaching of ancient civilizations in the Americas.

Professor Marc Zender of the Tulane Anthropology Department will be sharing knowledge about various writing styles from old Egyptian and Mayan cultures. Join him to learn how to spell and say your name in ancient glyphs! Sponsored by Tulane's Anthropology Club.

The Latin Americanist Graduate Organization (LAGO) is pleased to announce its Symposium on Community-Engaged Scholarship. This full-day event will include a series of presentations featuring graduate students, faculty, and local leaders working at the intersection of academia and community. All are welcome to attend one or more of three talks. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
