Location
Greenleaf Conference Room
100A Jones Hall

Join us in welcoming Dr. Benjamin Creutzfeldt for a lecture entitled, China’s Growing Role in Latin America on Thursday, April 19, 2018. China’s leaders touring Latin America have developed a fairly consistent discourse in their growing engagement with Latin America, but it is up to Chinese diplomats and businessmen to engage directly.

Dr. Benjamin Creutzfeldt, resident postdoctoral fellow for China-Latin America-U.S. affairs at the Foreign Policy Institute, Johns Hopkins School for Advance International Studies, explores how these concurrent approaches work, pointing to examples in Peru, Ecuador, and Colombia.

Please RSVP to cipr@tulane.edu.

The event is sponsored by the Center for Inter-American Policy and Research (CIPR).

Equity speaker series to host panel on navigating immigrant relations in the current political climate

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.
