Fall 2011 Film Series
Film: La Muralla Verde/The Green Wall (Director Armando Robles Godoy, Peru 1970)
TODAY: Thursday, December 1, 2011
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Location: Frick Fine Arts Auditorium
Description: Armando Robles’s “La Muralla Verde” (The Green Wall), is a film that embeds the senses of the viewer from the first scene because of the strength of its narrative, the usage of juxtaposed time, and its dialectical display of images. It is a story of an urban heroic young couple and their little son who against all odds decide to move to the Peruvian jungle, embracing a nationalistic colonizing project encouraged by the government during the 1970s. The family’s idyllic life is disrupted by the many difficulties they have to face in order to fulfill their dreams. The story is a metaphor of the dilemma that Peruvian citizens were experiencing during that time in a country where social change, progress, and individual realization were difficult to achieve. The masterful final sequence will leave the spectator speechless for its unexpected development of the story. The Green Wall is considered “a bitter and beautiful movie” and a piece of art from the late Armando Robles Godoy, who is considered the only Peruvian filmmaker to have created an auteur cinema in Peru. (By Mildred Lopez)
As usual, we will give a short introduction to the film and, after the presentation, you are welcome to stay for a discussion.
Some films are adult in nature and may not be appropriate for young audiences.

“Bolivarianism, Economic Integration and Regional Cooperation,” a lecture by Vladimir López Ríos (Senior Economic Researcher, Central Bank of Venezuela) and Daniel Kovalik (Senior Associate General Counsel of the USW)
For more than a decade, the government of Venezuela has been a leader in the formation of new regional partnerships and cooperation agreements aimed at strengthening South America and promoting unity among Latin American and Caribbean states. Arguably, the most well-known has been ALBA (The Bolivarian Alliance of Our America). To date, ALBA has eight member countries including Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, and Venezuela. The ALBA countries have been working to develop new forms of economic activity that are designed to meet basic needs and foster more equal relations within the region.
Please join us for a discussion with Mr. López on this new model of economic integration and other key initiatives that aim to promote transnational policies and regional cooperation through the ideals of Bolivarianism. Mr. Kovalik will be talking about another key country in the Region – Colombia – and the innovative legal means the USW has used to advance labor and human rights in that country.

11th Annual Graduate Conference: Trans-nationalizing Popular Culture
Date: April 20, 2012
The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center at Stony Brook University is pleased to announce its eleventh annual graduate student conference to be held on April 20, 2012 at Stony Brook Manhattan. We are looking for a wide range of popular culture topics and panels that explore the theme: “Trans-nationalizing Popular Culture.” Popular culture often transcends national boundaries, and this conference seeks to engage in a discussion that will allow us to understand the actions, influences, and phenomena that have helped Popular Culture in Latin America cross those boundaries. Paper/panel proposals that do not explicitly address the conference theme will also be considered (if not necessarily prioritized).
To that end, we are interested in continuing to promote work in:
Film, Television & Mass Media Studies; Cultural History; Comic books; Musical practices; Race, Gender, Class & Ability Studies; Theatre; Sports, Toys, and Games; Communication Studies; Visual History; and Queer Studies
The conference provides students the opportunity to present their research in a forum devoted to discussion, as well as to the exploration of new perspectives. The conference is opened to all disciplines (i.e., history, political science, literature, philosophy, anthropology, sociology, etc.).
Abstract (250-300 words) should be sent to email@example.com by February 1, 2012, either in English, Spanish or Portuguese, and must include a cover page with name, academic affiliation, and contact information.
The final schedule will be available by February 28, 2012. Students invited to participate should submit their final paper by March 31, 2012.

Grant, Fellowship & Award Opportunities
Funding Policy-Relevant Research in Latin America and the Caribbean
The Drugs, Security and Democracy (DSD) Fellowship Program supports research on organized crime, drug policy, issues of governance and associated topics in Latin America and the Caribbean across the social sciences and related disciplines. The fellowship seeks to develop a concentration of researchers who are interested in policy-relevant outcomes and membership in a global interdisciplinary network.
Fellowship Research Agenda
DSD funded research must address the relationship among at least two of the three topics below:
1. Drugs: Potential topics include, but are not limited to, international and regional drug policy, drug trafficking, organized crime, drug production, and impact on communities including youth delinquency and gangs.
2. Security: Potential topics include, but are not limited to, issues of traditional and non-traditional security, public safety, the pluralisation of security actors, the role of law enforcement, the accountability of police forces, formal and informal strategies to increase security, violence, instability, immigration and border security.
3. Democracy: Potential topics include, but are not limited to, issues of governance, state responses to organized violence, civil society networks and how they mobilize against organized crime and drugs, the framing of incentives to develop appropriate policies, freedom of the press, impunity, corruption, and the relationship between state and non-state actors.
Substance control in border regions; violence and electoral campaigns; human rights and security policy; media and violence and global drug flows are examples of a range of research topics that address the relationship among two of the three program areas. In addition, the program encourages interdisciplinary projects and those that address transnational and transregional issues.
The DSD Program features two competitions:
· Dissertation Fellowship: This competition is open to PhD candidates worldwide who have an approved dissertation prospectus by July 1, 2012, but have not completed writing for final submission.
· Research Fellowship:

Visiting Scholars and Fellows Program
Each year the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies (DRCLAS) selects a number of distinguished academics (Visiting Scholars) and professionals (Fellows) who wish to spend one or two semesters at Harvard working on their own research and writing projects. The Center invites applications to its Visiting Scholars and Fellows Program for academic year 2012-13. Visiting Scholars and Fellows are selected competitively on the basis of the applicant's qualifications, the quality of the applicant's research plans, and the relevance of both to the Center's mission and objectives.
For fellowship holders, the minimum stay is three months during the regular academic year. Fall term appointments run from September 1 to the end of December. Spring appointments begin in January and end in May. Visiting Scholars and Fellows are expected to be in residence a minimum of three months during term time.
DRCLAS offers residential fellowships for Visiting Scholars and Fellows from Argentina, Brazil, the Caribbean, Central America, Chile, Colombia and Ecuador, Mexico, and Venezuela. There are typically 10-12 Visiting Scholars and Fellows in residence each academic year. Scholars from other countries whose work focuses on Brazil, Central America, the Caribbean, Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela are also eligible. In addition, resources are available each year to provide residential fellowships from any country in the region. The Center currently offers nine fellowships that provide support for one semester of residence for Visiting Scholars and Fellows who are engaged in research projects on any country in Latin America or the Caribbean.
Visiting Scholars and Fellows are provided shared office space, computer, library borrowing privileges, access to University facilities and events, and opportunities to audit classes and attend seminars in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and in other Harvard professional schools. The residential fellowships cover round-trip travel expenses, health insurance (for the foreign Visiting Scholar or Fellow and accompanying immediate family), and a taxable $25,000 living stipend while at Harvard. Appointments are typically for one or two semesters. Recipients are expected to spend a minimum of twelve weeks at the University. Visiting Scholars and Fellows may also obtain funding from their own academic institutions, outside foundations or personal resources.
Proficiency in both written and spoken English is expected of Visiting Scholars and Fellows. Each Visiting Scholar or Fellow is expected to present a lecture in English on a topic related to his or her research and encouraged to be available for formal for informal consultation by faculty and students with related interests.
