This symposium is the relaunch of a project that began at Northwestern, in 2004, which featured several international symposia and established a global network of scholars. The goal of the project in its first incarnation was to undertake an analysis of US history, literary and cultural production from outside the frameworks of the exceptionalist paradigm. Inherent was a critique of American Studies itself, as methodology and rubric, and an interrogation of the residue of its cold war origins.

Please join the Latin American Library in welcoming Lirio Gutiérrez Rivera, a 2018-2019 LAL Richard E. Greenleaf scholar, who will be giving a work-in-progress talk titled Global Entanglements in the Production of Violence and the Migration of Hondurans on Monday, May 20, from 3:00-5:00 PM in the Latin American Library seminar room.

The talk will be in English. Refreshments will follow the talk.

Join us every Wednesday at 10:30 am for a bilingual storytime for kids ages 2 – 10. The program is part of an initiative between Tulane University’s Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the New Orleans Public Library called the Pebbles Center. This summer we will explore the environment and diverse geography of Latin America. Bring your favorite jungle animal and be prepared to learn some Spanish as we embark on an adventure through the Americas.

Join us as we learn about rainforests and the creatures that live there through books and with the help of special visitors from Audubon Zoo. This program is part of the Pebbles Center series of programs on Latin America. It will incorporate S.T.E.A.M. [Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math] activities and highlight the importance of the arts. Participants will meet several animals native to Central and South America with Audubon’s Zoomobile.

The annual Open House at the Latin American Library is an opportunity for the Tulane and greater New Orleans community to come together and celebrate the collections and services at the Latin American Library. For this event, LAL has prepared an exhibit of some recent acquisitions.

The Latin American Library has put together a display of books written by authors participating in the Fall 2019 Latin American Writers Series: Luis Negrón, Power Paola, Alberto Barrera Tyszka, and Gabriela Weiner. All books on display are available for check out. When you visit, be sure to grab a free bookmark commemorating the series!

The Stone Center started the annual family festival, Celebración Latina in 2004 to inaugurate the Pebbles Center. Since then, it has outgrown the original location at Laurence Square, outside the Pebbles Center to now be hosted by the Audubon Zoo. Fifteen years later, this festival now welcomes thousands of families to the zoo to explore the Jaguar Jungle and all the other creatures at the zoo. The festival is held at the Capital One Stage near the sea lions.

This K-16 Educator workshop is open to teachers, librarians and the community looking to incorporate diverse books into their teaching. Award winning author, Duncan Tonatiuh will engage participants of this workshop in a hands-on approach to incorporating unique story-telling strategies into the classroom. Using his Américas Award winning book, Undocumented: A Worker’s Fight Tonatiuh will share his experience telling this story and others through his unique design reminiscent of ancient codices.
