November 2018: Leiden University Latin America Month
Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) is one of Leiden University’s priority regions for academic cooperation. During the Latin America Month, our researchers will tell you all about it.
Academics from across the university with research interests in this region are represented by a region group that drives the LAC engagement agenda. This November, the university will host a series of events organized by each of the faculties aimed at bringing together researchers and students with an interest in the region.
Lectures, workshops and film screenings will put in the spotlight Leiden’s research activities across a wide range of topics from big data to political turmoil and corruption, sustainability and social justice. These events are open to all university staff and students and include:
