Across Latin America: A Meeting Place for Ph.D. students

Monte Alban, OaxacaThe Centre for Latin American Studies wants to provide Ph.D. students who work with Latin America with a creative and positive meeting place where you can discuss your project with other researchers and scholars who will be willing to give you feed back and discuss the problems and challenges we all meet, when writing an academic text or with doing field work under difficult conditions.

At the centre you will meet senior researchers who have long experiences with working in and about the region, and who will be willing to share their experiences with you.

If you are interested in participating in a meeting, please contact Anne Marie Ejdesgaard Jeppesen (ejdesgd@hum.ku.dk) or Georg Walter Wink (georg.wink@hum.ku.dk)

El tema de la reunión será el trabajo de campo, cómo se prepara, cómo se lleva a cabo y cómo se trabaja con el material después, cómo se analiza, cómo se escribe el texto final.

Es decir que hablaremos de tres fases diferentes, la planificación, la estancia en ‘el campo’ y el análisis del material, pero también sobre cómo se escribe un ph.d. basado en trabajo de campo.

Mexico's Pueblos Mágicos: A Paratext from the Metropolis?

In the course of the 1990's, an unprecedented arena of political negotiation emerged for indigenous minorities (and majorities) within many Latin America countries, as national constitutions were reformed to accommodate notions of multiculturalism and political multiculturalist initiatives multiplied. To take the temperature of this political space, my project examines one expression of the surge of political multiculturalism; the tourism program Pueblos Mágicos launched in 2001 by Mexico's federal government. Through a focus on the participant town Cuetzalan (Puebla), I specifically aim to analyze the identity and power configurations that are produced by and in relation to the program. In the presentation, I will contextualize the project, introduce its research questions, empirical material and methodology, and outline the structure of the thesis and its preliminary argument.

La reunión se hace en inglés.

El 25 de marzo Mattias Borg de la Universidad de Copenhague nos habla sobre su post doc, sobre el proceso involucrado en formular el proyecto y conseguir dinero y también sobre el proyecto mismo.

El 15 de abril, Claudia Fonseca de la universidad de Malmø nos va a introducir a su proyecto sobre la industria maquiladora en el norte de México.
Claudia Fonseca:  “Maquiladoras and representations of space in Yucatán, Mexico."
Erick Palomares:  "Innovaciones de políticas públicas y democracia. Elementos para un análisis interpretativo de innovaciones locales premiadas."
