Latin American Dialogues Speaker Series
Dr. Natalia Milanesio (University of Houston, Dept. of History) gave a fascinating talk on the breakdown of censorship laws in Argentina in the 1980s following the collapse of the most recent military dictatorship (related to her recent, award-winning book Destape: Sex, Democracy, and Freedom in Postdictatorial Argentina).
The talk was very well attended, with nearly fifty people tuning in to hear the lecture, which was followed by a lively discussion that lasted more than 40 minutes following the conclusion of Dr. Milanesio’s presentation. It was a great first event to kick off the series.
The next event will feature Dr. Ted Fischer (Vanderbilt University, Dept. of Anthropology), whose talk is titled “High-End Coffee, Maya Farmers, and the Creation of Value.” It will take place Wednesday, October 14, at 5:30 p.m. (also via Zoom). More information will be posted soon.
