Beginning this spring, the Latin American Library will host a colloquium series featuring faculty whose research considers relationships between Latin America and New Orleans.
Please join us on Friday, March 11 for a talk by Marilyn Miller, Professor of Spanish and Sizeler Family Professor in Judaic Studies, who will present new research on a mid-century New Orleans beautification project that immortalized Latin American independence leaders: “Lament of the libertadores: Monumental Demise in New Orleans’s ‘Garden of the Americas’”
This talk will be in English.
Also, on Friday April 8, Yuri Herrera-Gutiérrez Professor of Spanish will present on his novel-in-progress: “Juárez en Nueva Orleans. La ficción hecha de fragmentos de verdad.”
This talk will be in Spanish.
Both talks will be held in the LAL Seminar Room, 3-4:30pm. Refreshments will be served.
No Zoom!!! We hope to see you there, in person!
