Latin American Landscapes

This cluster connects scholars from across Arts whose research engages with landscapes in Latin America. Our workshops, speaker series, and other activities will centre the question of extractivism and its impact on Indigenous peoples, Latin American societies, and the environment. By fostering new research relationships, we will be able to apply for SSHRC grants and lay the foundations for a Centre for Latin American Studies. We will also use our events at UBC to develop collaborations with Latin American universities so as to create opportunities for Mitacs fellowships and to recruit Latin American postdoctoral researchers funded by national scientific councils.
