Third Annual Latino
Studies Research Symposium
Pena with any questions.
On May 12th - 13th,
Concilio Latino will host the third annual Harvard
Latina/o Studies Research Symposium, made possible
through the support of the David Rockefeller Center
for Latin American Studies, the Harvard Foundation
for Race and Intercultural Relations and the Dean's
Diversity Innovation Fund at the Graduate School
The symposium will
provide an opportunity for students from across
schools to discuss new and ongoing work on Latina/o
Studies. Its aim is to establish a Latina/o Studies
research community at Harvard across disciplines,
as well as to provide an opportunity for those already
involved in research to present their findings.
This year, the symposium,
aside from its regular plenary sessions and keynote
address by a prominent Latina/o Studies scholar,
will include forum and townhall events focusing
on strategies for the expansion of Latina/o Studies
scholarship and increase of Latinos and Latinas
in academic positions. If you would like to help
with the town hall planning process by researching
Harvard statistics on Latina/o faculty and student
enrollment, please contact Celina
