Join the Tulane Culture Workshop and the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research Post-Doctoral Fellow Maria Akchurin for a discussion of her work-in-progress in a workshop titled, Contested Water: Water Resources, Market Policies, and Social Mobilization in Post-Authoritarian Chile on November 13, 2017, in Newcomb Hall 314.

The Tulane Culture Workshop in a platform to discuss the latest social science research and hone our craft as publishing researchers in a spirit of support and inter-disciplinary exchange via peer critique. These workshops are different from a lecture series, where the audience passively listens to an oral presentation. In these workshop discussions, participants have read the article and the presenter gives only a brief introduction. Participants and presenter then workshop the pieces, providing critical feedback with the goal of helping the author rethink, rework, and polish their research.

Please RSVP to for a copy of this paper.

This workshop is funded by a Lavin-Bernick Grant.

View Full Event Description

The Center for Academic Equity at Tulane University is proud to present Border Li(n)es: Excluding, Extracting, and Expelling Immigrants in the Southern U.S. on September 25, 2018 at 7:00 PM as part of the Equity Speaker Series.

Following a summer of turbulent immigration relations in the United States, the Fall 2018 Equity Speaker Panel will focus on immigration on our Southern border and will feature specialists whose experiences vary from grassroots to professorial work. Panelists will include Josiah Heyman, Director of the Center for Inter-American and Border Studies, Ronald Martinez, New Orleans immigrant activist and spokesperson for the Congress of Day Laborers, Hiroko Kusuda, Clinical Professor and Director of Immigration Law at the Smith Law Clinic and Center for Social Justice at Loyola, and Laila Hlass, Clinical Professor of Law at Tulane Law School and the Stone Center for Latin American Studies.

These four distinguished speakers will share the stage of Freeman Auditorium to discuss the drastic variation in immigrant relations across the national, regional, and local spaces and ways that members of American society may become engaged in or change the now toxic and polarized political climate. This inaugural discussion will be followed by a question and answer session.
