Taller “Work in Progress” 2014-15


The "Work in Progress" workshop gathers faculty and students at the Casa Hispánica on select Fridays to discuss current research projects. During the 2014-15 academic year, the workshop coordinator is Seth Kimmel.

Work in Progress es un espacio para el diálogo entre profesores y estudiantes graduados del Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures. En este taller se discuten avances en los proyectos de tesis, se comparten libros próximos a publicarse y se presentan nuevas líneas de investigación.

Work in Progress is an ongoing conversation between faculty members and graduate students affiliated with the Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures. This training workshop offers an ideal space to discuss dissertation projects, forthcoming books, and new research lines in a horizontal and meaningful way.


Except for our final meeting, all 2014-15 sessions are scheduled from 10 am to 12 pm in 206 Casa Hispánica. Each meeting’s readings and materials will be available on the workshop’s website, which is accessible with your UNI. After brief and informal introductory remarks by the presenter, we dive straight into discussion, so please read the text and/or review the materials beforehand. If you have any questions or problems accessing the website, contact Seth Kimmel.
