2018 Summer Teacher Institute

Race and Ethnicity in Latin America

CLACS Summer Teacher Institute

July 11-13, 2018
UW-Milwaukee

Race and ethnicity continue to be among the most important determinants of opportunity in Latin America.  This Institute explores the racial and ethnic diversity of the region from colonial origins of racial and ethnic identities and categories to how practices evolved with the creation of new nation states and the abolition of African slavery in the late 19th century.  The focus of the sessions will be on the lived experience of race as well the practices and ideologies which have sometime served to blur ethnic lines while at the same time keeping those of African and indigenous descent often times marginalized and economically disadvantaged.

Cost:  $80 in-service teachers/$25 Education students (includes breakfasts, lunches, and materials).  Dorm housing is available for $60/night.

(1-3 graduate credits available for additional cost through UW-Whitewater.)

Application deadline:  May 21, 2018.  For more information, contact:  Julie Kline (jkline@uwm.edu or 414-229-5986 or clacs.uwm.edu)
