We invite you to participate in this free, in-person event, where we will explore the intersections between education, bodies, and aesthetics, and investigate the new and changing directions across a Latin American landscape in conversation with the United States. This event will also provide an opportunity to reflect on the educational social movements that have had a resurgence in Latin America in the last few decades. We will explore topics such as what it means to be educated and what role education plays in racist, classist, and patriarchal regimes, where we will seek to question our own roles within our contexts.
With these goals in mind, we will leave behind traditional paper presentations in favor of collective, interactive, and interdisciplinary conversations between academics, educators, artists, and social activists.
We can’t wait to see you there!
