UF Center for Latin American Studies 69th Annual Conference
Being On Earth: Territorios, Soundscapes, Rights and Relationships

University of Florida
March 19 - 21, 2019
In Honor of the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day

Building on 2018's 67th Annual Conference of the Center for Latin American Studies: Buen Vivir and Other Post-Development Pathways, it is a pleasure to invite all of you to continue our engagement and conversations through the 69th Annual Conference: Being On Earth: Territorios, Soundscapes, Rights and Relationships.

This conference will inspire us to explore diverse ways of belonging, learning and becoming-with our radically changing Earth. Engaging with ongoing efforts to decolonize knowledge production, we seek to cultivate conversations across boundaries with musicians, artists, activists, academics, Indigenous, and African descendant peoples in the Americas.

Conference participants will convene through academic presentations and experiential-learning workshops, including music, dance, and art. These activities will facilitate the process of co-producing knowledges that strengthen strategies and actions on socio-environmental changes, challenges, and opportunities. The conference, therefore, creates a space where participants can debate, communicate, and propose alternative paths for being on Earth, creating and strengthening existing networks and movements by bringing diverse actors together.
