LACIS invites all alumni, staff, faculty and students to a FREE ice cream social open house. It's scheduled for Thursday, September 19th from 3:00-5:00 p.m. at the University Club -- Rain or Shine.
As part of LACIS' Fall Lecture Series:
This panel will focus on the following questions: What are the most important issues in relation to race and indigeneity? If indigeneity in each local context results from very specific conditions that are different across the world, why do we need the concept of indigeneity? What are the most important conditions, and what are the best practices and discourses of decolonization in Latin America?
LACIS organizes a weekly lecture series during the academic year. These events take place on Tuesdays from 12:30-1:30 p.m., feature a catered luncheon on a first-come first-served basis, and are FREE and open the public. Please join us!

The mission of the Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies Program as both a Title VI Resource Center*, and as an academic program is:
- To train Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian specialists for academic, government, and private sector work.
- To support the intellectual development and intercultural knowledge of students and faculty interested in the region.
- To serve as a local, regional, and national resource center that provides outreach, support, and information to other university units, K-12 educators, government, community, and business constituencies.
*LACIS is funded in part by a Title VI Resource grant through the U.S. Department of Education’s International Foreign Language Education (IFLE) program.
