"¿Es este el oro que comes?" Lecture by Dr. Monika Wehrheim at the University of Talca, Chile


Lateinamerika-Reihe Das lebendige Land Lateinamerika


Organization: ILZ, VHS Bonn, Ibero - Club Bonn, Abteilung für Romanistik der Universität Bonn, Abteilung für Altamerikanistik der Universität Bonn

Contact persons: Dr. Antje Gunsenheimer 

Since a couple of years the Interdisciplinary Latin America Center organizes together with the Adult Education Center of Bonn, the Department of the Archaeology of the Americas and the Ibero-Club e.V. series of lectures to social political themes like for example the ongoing aims of sustainability of development of the United Nations (in sum called “SDG’s”). The organizers try to make visible perspectives of Latin America for an audience from Bonn. The theme of the next series of lectures refers with the title Das lebendige Land in Lateinamerika to the aim of sustainability No. 15, which deals with the protection, the recovery and the sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems. However, the protection of the ecosystems is not possible without the consideration of the necessities of the inhabitants. Therefore, the contributions of the series are questioning, which aspects exist during the reaching of the aims and, which approaches of solutions are currently traced.

Zukunftsvision(en) in den Amerikas

Visiones de futuro(s) en las Américas

June 12th - 14th 2019, University of Bonn
A conference of the regional working groups of the German Anthropological Association (GAA).
Throughout human history, our understanding of the future and future-orientated agency have been shaped by culture. The conference Future today / yesterday / tomorrow: Visions of Future(s) in the Americas will open the debate on the topic of "Future" as a field of research in the Humanities and in Cultural Studies. We want to discuss the diverse and complex forms and dimensions of "Future" across space and time in their material and immaterial forms of expression and discursive practices.
