The working group, like other CLAS working groups, will focus on fine-tuning events, workshops and networks of support and collaboration among people working on Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia…as well as the diasporas of these countries. Andean Argentina or Colombia? Of course if you make it so. It will provide forum for faculty and graduate students across disciplines interested in the in the history, culture, and contemporary issues of the multifaceted Andean region.
Evelyn’s own work focuses on her book project: Race, Gender, Violence, and Memory in Peruvian Narratives of the Andes. She received her Ph.D. in Hispanic Studies and a Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies from the University of Georgia.
Updates to the group will be posted on this page.
