As part of its efforts to build meaningful bridges with Latino communities, Indiana University will sponsor and host an exhibition booth at the 2018 Indiana Latino Expo. Held on Oct. 13 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, the Indiana Latino Expo will offer families and prospective students the opportunity to learn valuable information about the many educational opportunities available through IU.
The expo will take place in the Element Financial-Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, and is free and open to all.

QUEER ALIENation is a free, interactive evening of visual art, installation art, performances, conversation, and community solidarity. Join six local scholars, artists, educators, and activists as they play with issues of time, space, equity, and identity in order to present original artworks about their experiences as queer im/migrant graduate students within the United States. Grounded in arts-based research and rooted in a conception of art as activism, this show is a clarion call for individual and collective commitments to justice, mutual aid, and liberation.
Featuring the work of:
Javier Cardona Otero
Daniela Gutiérrez López
Marie Papineschi (Marie French)
with original research by Alexandria Hollett and in collaboration with The Back Door.
March 27, 2018 from 6pm to 10pm, Dance Party at 10pm:
Cruise the room from 6 – 8 PM,
ask questions during the panel discussion from 8 – 9 PM,
and be fabulous on the dance floor when we turn the disco lights on from 10 – 3 AM. Most importantly, though, show up for queer im/migrants and their lives from now – as long as it takes to build a queer future, without borders.
Four months after hurricane María hit Puerto Rico, creating a vast path of destruction across the island and coinciding almost to the day with a series of major earthquakes in central and southern Mexico leaving millions of people without homes, there is need for reflecting on the long term consequences of natural disasters like these, beyond the material damage they caused. Some of the questions posed at this roundtable, organized by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies in collaboration with the De pueblo a pueblo initiative, will be the following: what longterm strategies for rebuilding and development have been successful after preceding major disasters like the earthquake in Haiti (2010), or Hurricane Katrine? How have disasters contributed to reshaping the relationship between governments and local communities? What is the role of public and social media channels in reporting and encouraging, but also at times distorting a public conversation on regions and communities affected by natural disasters? What is “natural” and what is “human” or “social” about disasters like the recent hurricanes and earthquakes? What are the large-scale effects of natural disasters beyond the immediate destruction created, on the collective well-being of communities, and considering especially vulnerable populations such as the disabled, the elderly, and children?
The roundtable will bring together scholars of History, Education, Geography, and Political Science, to discuss these topics. Additionally, there will be testimonials offered by IU faculty and students from Puerto Rico and Mexico.
