The Global School Event Series: Fronteras reimaginadas: Reimagining Borders in Latin(x) America
The Global School Event Series 2021-2022 is a public forum highlighting the significant role of The Global School at WPI in addressing global grand challenges. From climate adaptation to new technologies for development, from re-thinking water and energy systems to poetry and place-making, our student projects, faculty research, and community collaborations bring the innovative WPI ethos around the world.
The Latin America and Caribbean program will be an exploration of relations and associations between the Spanish-speaking Caribbean and the United States. Keynote speakers for this event will include Lorgia García Peña, a scholar of racial and national identities and diasporic blackness with a focus on the Dominican Republic, and Noel Quiñones, a Puerto Rican poet based in New York. The session will also offer a review of recent innovations in WPI global project program activities in Puerto Rico and Latinx communities in Worcester, and feature presentations from WPI students who are from and have worked in Puerto Rico.
