This colloquium considers knowledges from the vantage point of local experience and artistic practice in the American hemisphere. More than recounting how the nature/culture divide came about, speakers will consider the ways in which both nature and civilization were differently conceived.
Speakers include Heather F. Roller, Colgate University; Pedro de Niemeyer Cesarino, Univeristy of São Paulo; Lucia Sá, University of Manchester; Pablo F. Gómez, University of Wisconsin/Madison; Brigitte Baptiste, Instituto Humboldt/Columbia University; and Gustavo Procopio Furtado, Duke University.
Co-sponsored by the Cogut Center for the Humanities, the Department of Hispanic Studies, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and the Brazil Initiative.
