Virtual Middlebury

Open to the Public

Sponsored by the Latin American Studies programs at Macalester and Middlebury, Toward New Latin Americanisms is envisioned to be a space in which generative thinkers question the current state of Latin American studies (in the United States and beyond) and speculate as to which direction(s) we may go in the future. In this talk, Marla Pérez Lugo and Cecilio Ortiz García (both of Universidad de Puerto Rico-Mayagüez / Macalester College) will give the talk “Observing the Observer: Reflections on Decolonizing Academia.”

We hope to spark conversation between students and faculty participants at Macalester and Middlebury. For queries, please contact Nicolas Poppe ( To register, please contact Afifa Benwahoud (
