Talk: "The Bishop, the 'Beast,' and Indigenous Catholics in the Postrevolutionary Huasteca, Mexico," by Ben W. Fallaw, Colby College (Co-sponsored by LLILAS)

Thu, October 3, 2013 | GAR 4.100

3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Professor Ben W. Fallaw, Associate Professor of Latin American Studies at Colby College, received his Ph.Dd in Latin American history from the University of Chicago in December of 1995.

Dr. Fallaw offers classes in Latin American History; Latin American Studies; the History of the Maya; Caudillos and Populism in Modern Latin America and Spain; Law, Society and Rebellion in Mexico; and the Roots of Violence in Latin America. He enjoys teaching Latin American Studies as opposed to just history because it allows him to bring his interests in anthropology and indigenous cultures, film, and literature into the classroom. He lived in Mexico City and Merida in 1992-93 on a Fulbright fellowship, and in Mexico City in 2002-2003 while on an ACLS-Ryskamp fellowship. Fallaw especially enjoys working with students doing honors theses and independent studies on Latin American topics.
