Daniela Ortiz dos Santos
LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES ASSOCIATION CONGRESS „Nuestra América: Justice and Inclusion“
The Latin American Studies Association (LASA) is the largest professional Association in the world for individuals and institutions engaged in the study of Latin America. With over 12,000 members, over 65 percent of whom reside outside the United States, LASA is the one association that brings together experts on Latin America from all disciplines and diverse occupational endeavors, across the globe.
“Nuestra América: Justice and Inclusion” signals the challenges of social, economic, racial, ethnic, gendered, sexuality-based, and other forms of inequality; the need to promote creative solutions for overcoming them; the importance of scholarship, activism, and policy in this regard; the relevance of changed demographics that make historically marginalized peoples a majority in the continent and recognition of their wide-ranging cultural, linguistic, political, social, and economic contributions; an inclusive definition of justice that relies on truth and facts and incorporates respect and dignity for all peoples; and a broad understanding of rights, both collective and individual.
In LASA Congress 2019, Daniela Ortiz will co-chair the panel on Architecture and Archives and will present the paper „Scenes of the World to Come: Lucio Costa and Le Corbusier as Filmmakers“ .
Participants of the panel are: Margareth da Silva Pereira (prourb-UFRJ, Brazil), Priscilla Alves Peixoto (FAU-UFRJ, Brazil) and Mário Magalhães (USU, Brazil).
