Republics of Fear: Understanding Endemic Violence in Latin America Today

The 2010 Lozano Long Conference

Thu, March 4, 2010 | Texas Union, Santa Rita Room 3.502


March 4–5, 2010



The conference will host panels on topics such as gender violence; intimate violence; organized crime,  kidnapping and drug traffic; political, state, and para-state violence; structural violence, including poverty, forced migration, racism, and discrimination; and representations of violence in the media, literature, films, and public discourse. The institute hopes in this way to foster and stimulate a new wave of theoretically informed, interdisciplinary, and culturally aware research into this crucial new challenge for Latin America.
  I am attaching the conference Program  (the website with the program and the sponsor info is in process of been updated. it should be ready tomorrow.)
