The Latin American Colloquium series will expose faculty and students on campus (not only history) to historiography in Spanish and Portuguese  and to faculty from the South Atlantic, whose work is often ignored.  It will also have faculty working on exiting  Latin American related topics. The colloquium will be a conversation, not a formal presentation. We ask participants to read a couple of articles or excerpts from books and come prepared to have a conversation (sometimes in Spanish or Portuguese). The colloquium is convened by Professor Jorge Canizares-Esguerra, Alice Drysdale Sheffield Professor of History, UT Austin. For the readings for each week, please contact at:
