Get ready for Carnival by joining us on Wednesday, February 9th to explore the musical traditions of Carnival in Panama with Dr. Samuel Robles, staff researcher and ethnomusicologist at the Centro de Investigaciones Históricas Antropológicas y Culturales. The Stone Center for Latin American Studies loves to explore the connections we share here in New Orleans with Latin America and this focus on Panama's tradition of carnival will provide deeper insight to the similarities and differences between carnival and Mardi Gras. We are delighted to host Dr.
Inspired by the Latin American Resource Center’s 2015 and 2016 Summer Teacher Institutes, Cuban Culture and Society: K-12 Teacher Institute in Cuba, these curricula examine the history, culture, and geography of Cuba. These curricula were created at a point of transition in Cuba, as the U.S. and Cuba begin to normalize relations which have been disrupted since the 1950s. This important point in time is an excellent vantage from which to re-examine Cuban history, culture, and U.S.-Cuban interactions. These interdisciplinary resources are adaptable across the K-12 classroom.
