Congratulations to the two interdisciplinary teams awarded LACIS SEED Grants for 2021/22. The purpose of LACIS SEED Grants is to facilitate interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary research among Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies scholars from at least two different university departments.
We hope you will join us for our fall lunchtime lecture series which will commence on Tuesday, September 21st at Noon.
Most of these lectures will be virtual. Please click on individual event links to obtain the registration link.
Lecture (9/28): “What happened to the bees? A documentary on the environmental conflict of the cultivation of transgenic soybeans in Mayan territory”
Please join us for our weekly lunchtime lecture. This event will feature a presentation that will discuss the negative impact of the cultivation of transgenic soybeans in the Mayan territory of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, such as the massive death of bees, the contamination of water and soil, conflicts between cultures, and the dispossession of the territory — and the way in which the documentary film “What Happened to the Bees?” addresses this story through the testimony of Gustavo Huchín and Leydy Pech.
LACIS is proud to highlight selected publications from our Affiliated Faculty.
Here you can learn more about their various areas of research, as well as their most recent publications.
