Conversations on Ireland and Latin America

Conversations on Ireland and Latin America

UCC’s Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies welcomes you to join us for a series of conversations on the growing connections between Ireland and Latin America in the areas of academia, art and activism. Throughout February, March and April, we will host a monthly virtual session, which will bring together academics, activists and artists with a connection to or a research interest in Latin America for a round table discussion, followed by participation from the audience. A key aim of these sessions is to connect those of us on the island of Ireland with an interest in social and cultural issues that impact Latin America, which are also relevant in our own communities.

Please join us for the second session in the series, this Wednesday March 24th, 16:00-17.30

All are most welcome. 

Speakers include:
Christian Nuñez, Nicaraguan refugee with international protection.
