Dear colegas, students, and friends,

This fall, the UCI Latin American Studies Center features online events centered on three of the main interdisciplinary interests of LASC: Extractivism; the past and the present of the Borderland/Frontera; and the African Diaspora in the Americas.

Hope you can join us, y hasta luego,
