ABOUT SOUTH AND ABOUT!
South and About! is a student-organized research workshop on the arts from Latin America and the Caribbean, supported by ISLAA. This program invites graduate students and emerging scholars in art history and related disciplines to participate in informal discussions among their peers. The thematic focus is broad and welcomes interdisciplinary methodological approaches, including, but not limited to, temporal and geographic proposals of an innovative nature. The workshop seeks to foster and strengthen further interconnections within research communities via creative intellectual exchanges. Established by ISLAA and The Institute of Fine Arts in 2017, South and About! happens twice every semester and takes place at The Institute of Fine Arts, NYU. Speakers are selected by the student organizers.
