The Scoop

The Latin American & Latinx Studies Symposium gives undergraduate students the opportunity to present original research on topics related to Latin American studies. This is the second year Rollins will host the event, which was previously hosted at Birmingham Southern College for the past 25 years. Proposals have been submitted by Rollins students as well as students from an array of colleges and universities, including Flagler, Davidson, University of Richmond, and more.

In a moderated panel format, undergraduates will share their research on themes related to current domestic and foreign issues in Latin America and the Latinx population in the U.S. Past projects have probed everything from gender-specific migration and agrarian reform to crime and morality and identity in music and film.
