The existential threat of climate change has inspired renewed intellectual engagement with the Anthropocene. Eurasian Studies are no exception to this trend. In the last decade, studies that grapple with the past, present, and potential future of the human-nature dialectic are on the uptick. These studies have forced us to reconsider intellectual and ideological paradigms, sources, mission, and role of scholar in society.

Nature’s Revenge: Ecology, Animals, and Waste in Eurasia seeks to bring some of this scholarship and activism to a wider public through a series of live-recorded interviews. The goal is to illuminate recent scholarship and complicate our understanding of the Eurasian Anthropocene and its place in our world.

NOTE WELL: This event was originally scheduled for February 23 but has been shifted to Wednesday, February 24, 2021.

Asia Pop: From Hanok to Hanbok
Location:
via Zoom
Sponsored by:
Asian Studies Center
See Details

Dr. Saeji will explore the contradictions and effects of the use of imagined and real Korean settings and traditional iconography in recent videos from Korean hip-hop artists with a particularly close reading of the rapper Beenzino’s mid-2016 offering “January.” She investigates what symbols and icons are used to visually represent Korea in the videos, as they take a foreign genre and imbue it with Koreanness. These videos circulate and re-circulate a limited number of icons of Korea, because the images are meant not to portray pre-modern Korea in its complexity, but traditional Korea both as a symbol of national pride and as a (domestic and international) tourist destination where the palace is a backdrop and you wear a hanbok to create a visually striking Instagram post. Operating as the king of the music video’s world, the hip-hop artist maintains his artistic independence through challenging tradition with juxtaposed elements of the present day.

Crimes Against Humanity in Latin America Series: Nicaragua
Sponsored by:
Center for Latin American Studies
See Details

While the CLAS @ Pitt Crimes Against Humanity Series has previously focused on well-documented and covered crimes and government policies in the Southern Cone (Argentina, Chile and Brazil in particular), more recent, ongoing issues involving large-scale dynamics are ever more important. One such case is Colombia and the worrying trend of targeted assassination of community activists involved in the transformational potential of the Peace Process that commenced with the 2016 Peace Accords of the Santos administration (2010-2018).

On February 25th, acclaimed editorial cartoonist Pedro X. Molina (in exile in the United States) and UCA’s Mario Sánchez and Social Scientist will reflect on the events that followed the student protests of April 2018 in Nicaragua, as well as the antecedents and the political and social context within which their echo has impacted daily life in the country.

Panoramas Roundtable: Analyzing the Roots of Migration in Central America's Northern Triangle
Sponsored by:
Center for Latin American Studies along with Panoramas
See Details

Join us on Friday, February 26th at 4:15 pm for our next Panoramas Roundtable to discuss our featured article: "Analyzing the Roots of Migration in Central America's Northern Triangle," written by Panoramas Intern, Isabel Morales. To read the article, please visit: panoramas.pitt.edu

Every year, around 500,000 refugees and asylum-seekers flee from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. These three countries comprise a region known as the Northern Triangle of Central America, which is plagued with socio-economic instability, poverty, corruption, and chronic violence. Today, there are misconceptions and limited views regarding the causes of the humanitarian crisis in the region. These should be re-assessed by analyzing the root causes that sparked new incentives for migration, which are crucial to understanding the many interrelated factors affecting the Northern Triangle and its people.

Isabel Morales is an international student from Colombia at the University of Pittsburgh. She is currently a sophomore majoring in Economics with a minor in French and a Certificate in Latin American Studies. Through her experiences living in Colombia, the United States, and Israel, along with the opportunities offered by the university, she has become greatly interested in Latin American affairs and its role in the study of development economics. As a Panoramas intern, Isabel hopes to promote the region and continue exploring areas of interest such as politics, development, and human rights.
