providing fellowship, education, and recreation for tulane graduate students interested in latin america
Tulane University’s Latin American Graduate Organization (LAGO)’s 2017 Graduate Conference: “Knowledge and Power” will be held January 27-29 in New Orleans. At the conference, we encourage participants to engage in an interdisciplinary discussion on subjects related to inequalities in the creation and distribution of information – cultural, historical, empirical, and digital – in the Americas and the Caribbean. In addition to discussing social, economic, and political barriers to knowledge production and access, we seek to highlight a broad range of dialogues that move beyond the boundaries between traditional academic disciplines.
Conference participants will be able to meet and dialogue with Latin Americanist graduate scholars, faculty, and community leaders from around the world, explore New Orleans, and experience the city’s unique Mardi Gras season.
