Colonial Lecture Series

The Colonial Lecture Series of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at UT Austin, scheduled for the academic year 2011-2012, is an initiative aimed to bring to our campus distinguished senior scholars as well as emerging scholars whose works are opening paths of epistemological innovation and engagement with indigenous and decolonizing perspectives in the cultural study of the Colonial period in Latin America. This initiative is part of a process of intellectual and institutional renewal of our Department.

Our calendar of events include:

"From Degeneration to Whitening: Farmers, Farriers, and the Folkbiology of Race," a lecture by Professor Ruth Hill (University of Virginia-Charlottesville), on Tuesday, January 24, 2012; 4:-5PM; BEN 2.104:
