Oct 14-15, 2016
"Unearthing the South: Indigeneity, Globality, Community" is a two day symposium considering knowledges from the vantage point of local experience and artistic practice in the American hemisphere.

The event will open at 4 p.m. on Friday 14th October with the screening of the critically acclaimed Colombian movie "El abrazo de la serpiente" (2015), followed by a Q&A with its script writer Jacques Toulemonde and Brown undegraduate student Hugo Lucitante. 

The second day will be an all day symposium with scholars and activists working on Latin America from different disciplines and vantage points.

Organized into three panels and a keynote, the touchstone ideas grounding this symposium include interconnectedness, reciprocity, non-human agency, and Amerindian perspectivism. They will help us to unearth what has always been present, but has been rendered invisible: hemispheric and cosmopolitan indigeneity, human-animal alliances, and other ways of making sense of globality through community. 

Location: Pembroke Hall 305, 172 Meeting Street, 9am- 5pm
