Connecting the Light

Contact: Karoline Schleh · kmschleh@loyno.edu · (504) 723-3088

Location: Collins C. Diboll Gallery, 4th Floor, Monroe Library

Exhibition runs until 11/25. Paintings and photographs by Erica Lambertson and Akasha Rabut. Erica and Akasha met in 2009 shortly after both artists found themselves living in New Orleans. They connected artistically through a mutual love and obsession for light and color. Through the years they have collaborated informally on many projects and taken a strong interest in each others work. The concept for this show came from a mutual admiration for each others work and an interest in further exploring the connection that happens naturally through an artistic friendship. Diboll Gallery hours: Mon- Sat 10-6pm

(Dis)Respecting Sovereignty? Diachronic Justice and the Migration Crisis 

Dr. Nathan Henne 

Coordinator of Latin American Studies

Friday, September 21, 2018

3:30-4:30 p.m.

Whitney Presentation Room, Thomas Hall

What is the history behind the specific conditions that cause so many Central Americans to risk everything—their lives included—to flee to the US?  Has the US really done a better job of creating good economic opportunities? Is there merit in allegations that the US has directly and indirectly violated the sovereignty of the countries of the “Triangulo del Norte” (Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras) to create the very conditions that force people to flee? Who is responsible for the current immigration crisis?

Dr. Nathan Henne connects the dots between repeated historical US interference in Central America and the current migration crisis.
 
All are welcome -- students especially! Refreshments will be provided.
