The Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies is offering a Symposium on Latin America in the Early Colonial Period, which will be held on Saturday, 11 April from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM.
The Newberry Library website provides an announcement:
“This symposium aims to explore the complexities of Latin America during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, grappling with the multiple perspectives of the many Indigenous and European cultures involved in this time of contact and conflict.
“This is a hybrid program, with two scholarly sessions in the morning and a public keynote lecture in the afternoon. Papers for the morning sessions will be precirculated to those who register to attend, and the authors will not read the papers. They will talk briefly about their research projects, followed by prepared commentary, with the bulk of the time given to discussion among the panelists and with the audience.
“Both parts of this program are free and open to the public, but space is limited and registration in advance is required by 10:00 AM on Friday, April 10th.”
For Northern Illinois University students wishing to attend this event, note that “faculty and graduate students at member institutions of the Center for Renaissance Studies consortium may be eligible to apply for travel funding to attend this program (http://www.newberry.org/newberry-renaissance-consortium-grants).”
