Welcome to Latin America in the Global South
The Georgia Latin America in the Global South Project sponsors a wide variety of events, including lectures by distinguished scholars, conferences, seminars on student and faculty work-in-progress, and field exam roundtables. The Workshop also hosts large-scale community gatherings such as discussions with local immigrant rights activists and film screenings. (We serve great food at our events). Faculty work closely with graduate and undergraduate students to determine the Workshop's thematic focus, which has centered on Latin American religious and cultural history, transnational history, Latinos in the South, and the region's tumultuous history of capitalist development. Region, religion, and sexuality, along with race, class and gender, are key categories of analysis in our interdisciplinary discussions, which typically involve scholars from multiple departments across campus.
