October 23, 2018 Sing to Me About Love... and Other Tortures A Monologue in Spanish by Jacqueline Briceño O'Hara Student Center Dining Room 12:00 - 2:30 p.m. For more information, contact: David Tenorio, Ph.D. at The obsession of a teenager to compose an operatic aria about love and the meaning of pain throws her into unveiling the secrets of her grandmother, who is about to turn 100 years old, and of her mother, who is torn between divorce and suicide. Three generations of women whose personal stories lead them to face estrangement, despair, and other generational struggles. Nothing more complicated for Martirio, the protagonist, than to flesh out the pain of her own loneliness. This is a subtle and delicate performance that adds doses of humor and innocence, culminating with the protagonist singing her opera repertoire while rediscovering her strength and passion.

November 29, 2018 Colloquium: "Staging the Movement: El Teatro Campesino's Participatory Democracy" 602 Cathedral (Humanities Center) 12:30 - 2:00 p.m. Featuring: Elizabeth Rodriguez Fielder (English), with responses from Bill Scott (English) and Mike Sell (IUP, English) During the 1960s and 1970s, American minority artists involved in social movement activism produced work that would seek to revolutionize the relationship between art and politics. My book tells the story of the artistic side of organizing during the civil rights movement, what I refer to as cultural activism. Through performance and experimental media, creative production offered ways for people to debate political ideologies while still maintaining solidarity with the movement. I argue that internal dissent, rather than unity, shaped creative expression emerging from civil-rights-era social movements. The chapter I will workshop centers on the early plays of El Teatro Campesino, a collective ensemble that developed from the strikes and protests that would lead to the creation of the United Farm Workers of America. What began on the picket lines as actos on flatbed trucks became a touchstone for Chicanx/Latinx theater and performance art. Scholars overlook these early performances as didactic and simplistic; however, I argue that the actos go beyond simply performing oppression and were meant to provoke questions and debates about Chicanx identity. I place the actos within a larger theater history: the avant-garde theater scene in San Francisco that influenced El Teatro’s founder, Luis Valdez; political theater that recalled the Federal Theater Project and Soviet Blue Blouse Living Newspaper performances; and Brecht’s epic theater. I look at how El Teatro used performativity to explore the uncomfortable spaces between ethnic or cultural expression and working class solidarity. Using material from El Teatro Campesino’s archives, this chapter intends to present new readings that connect the group to other performance troupes of civil-rights-era cultural activism.

Welcome to Brazil Nuts!

Brazil Nuts is an active student organization at the University of Pittsburgh. Since its creation in 1998, the group's primary goal has been to expose students to Brazilian culture and the Portuguese language, creating environments for the students to practice their Portuguese outside of the classroom and to interact within the Brazilian community.

The club's activities provide students with unique opportunities to learn more about Brazil and its people. Weekly dance classes are offered where participants can enjoy themselves while learning about axé, samba and other forms of Brazilian dance, while movie nights provide viewers with a chance to witness the art of Brazilian cinema. The club also offers Bate-Papo, a weekly conversation table where students of all levels can practice Portuguese with peers and native Portuguese speakers.

Membership is open to anyone who is interested in the Portuguese language and learning about the cultures where Portuguese is spoken. Take a look at our site, learn about some of our activities and find out about other events occuring in the Pittsburgh area! Visit the Brazil Nuts Facebook:

Launching of Innovation Fund grant competition to create higher education institutional partnerships between Mexico and the United States   Mexico City, Mexico, October 9, 2018 — The U.S. Department of State, along with Partners of the Americas (Partners) and NAFSA: Association of International Educators (NAFSA), announce the launch today of a new Innovation Fund grant competition to create higher education institutional partnerships between Mexico and the United States.  The Mary Street Jenkins Foundation Innovation Competition is supported through a generous contribution from the Jenkins Foundation.  The Foundation’s grants have benefited Mexico’s youth establishing thousands of scholarships, schools, and sports centers, and the quality of life in the state of Puebla through the development of rural clinics and hospitals, as well as the provision of clean drinking water and public services in rural communities.   The purpose of the Mary Street Jenkins Foundation Innovation Competition is to provide more opportunities for higher education institutions (HEIs) in the United States and Mexico to work together to provide new student exchange and training programs between both countries. The HEIs that are eligible for this grant competition include universities (public and private), colleges, technical/vocation schools, and other post-secondary institutions with credit-bearing programs.   This grant competition seeks proposals from teams of HEIs in Mexico and the U.S. that will increase student exchange and training in the fields of Social Sciences and Humanities. Proposals in the following academic disciplines will be given special consideration: Archaeology, Anthropology, Education and exchange programs that include and will benefit economically-disadvantaged and/or racial/ethnic minority student populations in both countries.   Since January 2014, a total of 44 Innovation Fund grant-winning partnerships have been awarded to Mexican higher education institutions in partnerships with universities and colleges the United States. Mexico is the lead country to engage with and benefit from this signature hemispheric-wide education initiative, accounting for almost one-third of all grants. To date, a total of 18 Mexican states and 20 U.S. states benefit from Innovation Fund partnerships.   The competition will remain open for partnerships between Mexican and U.S. HEIs through January 31, 2019. Full details of the competition and application instructions can be found at

“Democratic backsliding and public administration” Jointly hosted by the Robert Schuman Centre and the School of Transnational Governance -- European University Institute, Florence   31 January and 1 February 2019 Scientific Committee Michael W. Bauer (Chair of Comparative Public Administration, German University of Administrative Science Speyer & School of Transnational Governance) B. Guy Peters (Maurice Falk Professor of Government, Department of Political Science, University of Pittsburgh) Jon Pierre (Research Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Gothenburg) Kutsal Yesilkagit (Professor of International Governance at the Institute of Public Administration, University of Leiden)   Liberal democracy appears to be at risk. Its hallmark institutions—political pluralism, separation of powers and rule of law—are coming under pressure, as authoritarian sentiment is growing around the globe. While this democratic backsliding features prominently in social science scholarship, the Public Administration community lags behind. Only a few contributions have so far addressed the administrative dimension of democratic backsliding. This shortfall impairs our understanding of this recent dynamic transforming the political landscape. For without considering their approach toward the executive, efforts of actual and aspiring authoritarians remain only partly understood.   The workshop therefore addresses the administrative dimension of democratic backsliding. What happens to state bureaucracies when authoritarian politicians enter office? How do they seek to use the administration to their ends, and how does it react? Literature on politicisation, reform and administrative culture may provide clues; however, a systematic analytical framework for state bureaucracies in times of democratic backsliding is yet to emerge. What can we learn from current and historical examples, and what does normative public administration theory have to say about the relationship of liberal democracy and bureaucracy in turbulent times?   We invite scholars working on the relationship of democratic backsliding and public administration from theoretical, empirical or normative perspectives to submit an abstract. Special emphasis is also paid to country-specific case studies. We also encourage practitioners from international organisations or national administrations to share their experiences with democratic backsliding with regard to public administration.   Please send your proposals (500 words maximum) to the scientific committee no later than 19th of October 2018 (via and Financial support for travel and accommodation will be available; priority will be given to applicants without assistance from their home institution.

Latin America in Translation/En Traducción/Em Tradução

2018-19 Call for Proposals

In the English-speaking world, Latin Americans are more often written about than read.  As a result, the educated public in the United States continues to learn most of what it does know about the region from Latin Americanists who are themselves foreigners to the national realities they study. Since October 1990, the UNC and Duke Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies has undertaken an effort to address this imbalance by establishing an ongoing editorial series, “Latin America in Translation/En Traducción/Em Tradução.”

The Latin America in Translation Series is a joint initiative of the UNC and Duke Consortium, Duke University Press (DUP), and the University of North Carolina Press (UNCP) and is directed by an editorial committee of faculty members and editors from the three sponsoring institutions. Since 1993, more than 40 books have been published in the series with more forthcoming regularly.

The Series translates and publishes in English outstanding books in a wide range of fields by important Latin American writers and scholars. It helps to further dialogue across academic communities in Latin America and the English-speaking world.  And it brings Latin American content to students and scholars in other fields of study.

The books must have already been published in the original language. While most topics in the social sciences and humanities are considered, the committee gives highest consideration to those works that, once translated, will be most likely to attract a significant readership in English. The committee does not normally select highly specialized works that will likely be of interest mostly to specialists who can already read the book in the original language. The committee is particularly eager to translate works that can be used effectively in the classroom.

Nonfiction has a much better chance of being selected than fiction or poetry. Those who submit works of literature, especially, should provide an explanation of potential classroom use.   

Nomination Procedures:

Interested scholars are encouraged to nominate a title for consideration in the series; self-submissions are not invited. Only complete submissions will be accepted. Please include the following:

  • A completed nomination form (attached).
  •  A nomination letter from one or more people, other than the author, that addresses the book’s importance within Latin America and for an English-language audience, as well as its need for translation.
  • (Recommended) One or two particularly significant published reviews of the book with complete references for the sources.
  • A copy of the book (a PDF version is fine).

The deadline for submissions is Friday, November 30, 2018. Incomplete submissions, or submissions postmarked after the deadline, will not be accepted. Please submit materials to:  Address to use if mailing through US Postal Service: Latin America in Translation Series, Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies, Box 90254, Duke University, Durham, NC  27708-0254.

Address to use if mailing via Federal Express or another courier service:  Latin America in Translation Series, Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies, Room 143 Franklin Center, Duke University, Durham, NC  27705.

Council Hemispheric Affairs Founded in 1975, the Council on Hemispheric Affairs (COHA), a nonprofit, tax-exempt independent research and information organization, was established to promote the common interests of the hemisphere, raise the visibility of regional affairs and increase the importance of the inter-American relationship, as well as encourage the formulation of rational and constructive U.S. policies towards Latin America. In 1982, COHA’s board of trustees voted to expand its mandate to include monitoring Canadian/Latin American relations. Since its inception, COHA has been one of the most active and broadest-based U.S. private bodies dealing with the entire spectrum of political, economic and diplomatic issues, as well as responding to the economic and political challenges confronting the nations of this hemisphere. From its beginnings, COHA’s board consisted of the leadership of some of this country’s most important trade unions, professional organizations and religious groups, as well as distinguished civic and academic figures, who joined together to advance their common belief in support of representative government and pluralistic institutions throughout the hemisphere.

Global Links Global Links is a medical relief and development organization dedicated to promoting environmental stewardship and improving health in resource-poor communities, primarily in Latin America and the Caribbean. Our two-fold mission provides hospitals with a socially and environmentally beneficial alternative to sending hundreds of tons of still-useful surplus materials to landfills. Hospitals and clinics in under-served communities often lack the supplies and equipment necessary to provide even basic care to their patients, resulting in needless suffering and deaths. At the same time, the US healthcare industry generates a staggering amount of medical surplus which, without intervention, is destined to pile up in our landfills. Global Links' innovative model of recovery and reuse connects these two social problems in a way that helps to solve both, creating a "virtuous circle" that converts an environmental burden to a life-saving purpose.

The Economic Commission for Latin America CEPAL (news) The Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLA) -the Spanish acronym is CEPAL- was established by Economic and Social Council resolution 106(VI) of 25 February 1948 and began to function that same year. The scope of the Commission's work was later broadened to include the countries of the Caribbean, and by resolution 1984/67 of 27 July 1984, the Economic Council decided to change its name to the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC); the Spanish acronym, CEPAL, remains unchanged.   ECLAC, which is headquartered in Santiago, Chile, is one of the five regional commissions of the United Nations. It was founded with the purpose of contributing to the economic development of Latin America, coordinating actions directed towards this end, and reinforcing economic ties among countries and with other nations of the world. The promotion of the region's social development was later included among its primary objectives.   In June 1951, the Commission established the ECLAC subregional headquarters in Mexico City, which serves the needs of the Central American subregion, and in December 1966, the ECLAC subregional headquarters for the Caribbean was founded in Port-of-Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. In addition, ECLAC maintains country offices in Buenos Aires, Brasilia, Montevideo and Bogotá, as well as a liaison office in Washington, D.C.
