EU Cultural Policy: How to...

Participants in this workshop will gain insights into the shifts in EU cultural policy. They will also develop a foundation for their own analyses of European cultural policy. In different sessions, they will have an overview of culture in the long history of the post-war European movement. They will be introduced to the main mechanisms of cultural policy at the European, national, and regional levels. And they will have an opportunity to engage with experts in the area of policy analysis. The workshop is especially helpful to researchers in the humanities and social sciences who want to understand the mechanisms of cultural production in Europe and the political decision making that determine them.

Morning Events will have unlimited participants.
Afternoon Events will have a limited of 15 participants. Register Early!

Upon completion of the full workshop (all four modules), registered students and faculty will each receive a $150 stipend to purchase research materials or complete some project. In addition, participants in the full-day workshop will receive a Grubhub credit for lunch delivery during the day.

Zoom
Sponsored by:
Center for Latin American Studies along with Center for Health Equity
See Details

CLAS & the Center for Health Equity co-sponsor this reading group. We will discuss the conclusion of Matthew H. Rafalow's "Digital divisions: How schools create inequality in the tech era". The book chapter talks about technology, play, and discipline and how it plays in different environments. Pitt has access to this book.

With the support of the Center for Latin American Studies, we explore 1) the problems Latinos in small yet rapidly growing populations face, and 2) how to solve those problems. We hope to get new writing and research collaborations going! Open to all interested: students, faculty, staff, and practitioners from Pitt and beyond. If you want to get extra network time, we will be there 30 minutes before and after the meeting time.

4:15 pm Colloquium
Panoramas Round Table Interculturality in Medicine: An Analysis of Botanicas in the United States
Location:
Zoom
Sponsored by:
Center for Latin American Studies along with Panoramas
See Details

As the Latinx population continues to grow in the United States, the medical system should be changing with it. The use of botanicas is one way of bridging this gap, but they are not without their flaws. While they are generally beneficial to the Latinx community, the lack of communication and cultural competency on behalf of medical providers can lead to bad outcomes for the patients.
