McKinney Conference Room, 111 Thayer Street

CLACS will host both Lauren Deal (Ph.D. Candidate in Anthropology) & Juan Malagamba (UNA-Argentina) for a great event on the topic of Identity, Representation, and the Ethics of Playing Andean Music in Buenos Aires. This event will be held in Spanish and English.

Lauren E. Deal is a Ph.D. candidate at Brown in the department of Anthropology specializing in linguistic and socio-cultural anthropology. She received her BA in anthropology from George Washington University. Her dissertation research examines ideas of race, indigeneity, and identity in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Specifically, it examines how Argentine's of European descent engage in projects of indigenous linguistic and cultural revival to consider the politics of appropriation and the meanings of whiteness in Latin America. She has previously conducted research in Buenos Aires on language and music in protest, and the language of Opera pedagogy.
