Film: Profundo Carmesí (1996, Director Arturo Ripstein)
Description: After three decades of being among the most internationally renowned Mexican filmmakers and the country’s undisputed paragons of sordid, unflinching film drama that found ever more direct paths to hopelessness, director Arturo Ripstein and screenwriter Paz Alicia Garciadiego made their first bona-fide black comedy in Profundo Carmesí, a madly hilarious tale of murder and twisted love between a couple (Regina Orozco and Daniel Giménez Cacho) who kill wealthy spinsters for their money. Despite the lurid subject matter and some extremely hard-to-watch moments, the film sports a glorious sense of humor that magically balances drama with horror, and that opens unexpected affective possibilities where other Ripstein/Garciadiego (and many other highly regarded Mexican films, for that matter) shut them down as they wallow in their characters’ misery. It is film that is disturbing and enjoyable all at the same time (Felipe Pruneda).

(des)articulaciones - 3rd Biannual Graduate Student Conference
Title: “(In)visible Cosmovisions: Dialogues in Afro and Indigenous Latin America and the Caribbean”
With the emergence of subaltern and postcolonial studies over the past quarter century, scholars have increasingly shifted attention to the political, epistemic, and poetic force of indigenous and Afro-descendent communities in Latin America and the Caribbean. Nonetheless, the potential analogies and resonances between the worldviews, textualities, and recurrent political struggles of these populations remain largely overlooked and underexplored. (Des)articulaciones 2011 seeks to create a productive dialogue between these perspectives and explore new possibilities for decolonizing conceptual frameworks in the 21st century. This two-day conference brings together graduate students from various departments across the United States whose research engages with these issues. This conference is organized by the graduate students in the Department of Hispanic Languages and Literatures.
Dates: Friday, October 21 - Saturday, October 22, 2011
Location: William Pit Union, University of Pittsburgh

This second symposium will build on the accomplishments of the 2008 Symposium on Teaching Indigenous Languages of Latin America (STILLA), the first initiative of this scope in the world, which resulted in the formation of the Association for Teaching and Learning Indigenous Languages of Latin America (ATLILLA).
Dates: October 30 - November 2, 2011

VI Graduate Student Conference on Latin America and the Caribbean
Theme: “Imagining Culture, Past and Present”
Recent scholarship on Latin America has provided fresh takes on culture. Questioning monolithic views of the concept, scholars are asking how people imagine themselves simultaneously in relation to local, national, transnational, and global worlds. They are also rethinking forms of analysis that separate culture from economics and politics. They are looking, for instance, at the role of culture in economic and political practices and institutions; at consumption as a site where economics and culture intersect; at the role of political and economic practices in shaping creativity and the arts. Other scholars are rethinking culture itself as an analytical concept and its relation to categories such as gender, race, class, and ethnicity. This conference seeks to further interdisciplinary conversation on the theme of culture, from the pre-colonial period to the present day.
Dates: November 3-4, 2011
Location: University of Maryland, College Park

Call for Papers
Universal Human Rights Conference: 500th Anniversary of Antonio de Montesinos
While concerned with the history of human rights, the conference will have as its primary focus assessing current institutional and legal approaches to move forward in protection of human rights. The 500th anniversary is the ‘rationale’ for the conference. Given many contemporary experiences with problems in the global human rights regime, a review of universal definitions and protections of human rights would be justified even without the 500th anniversary.
While we have created in the last century many formal human rights statements and enforcement institutions, from the ILO to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and various courts built on the Nuremberg model, egregious violations of defined standards continue. For example, despite great progress in defining indigenous rights, there are many cases where specific native communities are being displaced or forced to adapt to norms imposed by outside dominant societies. The movement of millions of migrants as a companion to economic globalization has spawned numerous failures to protect labor and other human rights. Imbedded in this migration is the smaller but more appalling abuses arising from involuntary human trafficking. While many religious institutions and traditions provide models for justifying and defending human rights, of which Montesinos is a stellar example, movements linked to many religious traditions have been tempted to approve suppression of rights in the name of conformity.
Consequently, the general purposes of this conference are two:
1. To review as many as possible of the dimensions of the history and current state of human rights protections; and
2. To develop consensus from participants about the current state of human rights and the steps needed to build positively on the legacy of people such as Antonio de Montesinos.
If you would like to organize a session or presentation a paper at the conference, submit a proposal by October 17, 2011
To submit a proposal, please follow the steps below:
1. Email your Name, Employer/University/College/Organization, and contact information to email@example.com
2. Include the title and an abstract of 300 words or less.

We will respond to you promptly. We plan publication of selected papers in a conference proceedings.
If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 989-463-7203. You may fax proposals to Edward Lorenz at 989-463-7277.
Proposals are invited on the following topics:
- The history and philosophy of universal human rights, especially in the Americas, Spain and other colonizing nations;
- The institutional structure and processes for protecting universal human rights (including the responsibility to protect);
- The relationship of human rights to issues such as sovereignty, migration, labor, gender, development, and security/terrorism;
- The relationship of universal rights to different local, historical, and indigenous cultures;
- Religion and human rights; and
- Leadership in defining and protecting human rights.

Whiteford Graduate Student Award in Applied Anthropology
The Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology (SLACA) announces its Whiteford Graduate Student Award in Applied Anthropology in honor of Michael B. Whiteford and Scott Whiteford. The award is intended to help two students attend a professional anthropological conference (American Anthropological Association, Society for Economic Anthropology, Society for Applied Anthropology, Society for Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology).
The prize consists of US $200 for a student registered in a graduate program in the USA or Canada, and US $300 for a student registered in a graduate program in Latin American or the Caribbean. We encourage anthropology departments to support students entering the competition by providing additional conference travel funds.
The Whiteford Graduate Student Award was created through the enduring support of Michael B. and Scott Whiteford who have donated all of the royalties from their book Crossing Currents: Continuity and Change in Latin America to the Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology since its publication in 1998. With their contributions, SLACA has supported Latin American scholars by helping them travel to present their work at the annual meetings of the American Anthropological Association. We are proud to extend the Whitefords’ generosity to students’ emerging scholarship at professional anthropological meetings.
Papers submitted to the award’s committee are limited to a maximum length of six thousand words, including bibliography. Papers can be from any subfield of anthropology, but they must have an applied component. Papers must be based on field research carried out in Latin America and the Caribbean or among first generation migrants from these areas to other countries. The papers can be written in English, Spanish, French or Portuguese and must have been or will be submitted to a professional anthropological meeting (AAA 2011, SfAA 2012, SEA 2012). Awardees must demonstrate formal registration to a professional anthropological society meeting, acceptance of the paper, and travel receipts indicating attendance. The student must be a member of SLACA. Deadline for receiving papers: November 1, 2011
