TLN Telelatino Essay Prize Ceremony and Latin American Working Group (LAWG) Collection Opening
Thursday, February 16, 2017
CERLAC Resource Centre - Kanef Tower 6th Floor
2:00 pm – 4:00pm
All are welcome! (RSVP by February 10, 2017)
CERLAC invites you to an event celebrating and commemorating Canada-Latin America connections. The TLN Telelatino Award for papers on the Latin American experience in Canada will be given to three York undergraduates: Susana Veliz (first place), and Yuriko Matayoshi Franco and Thomas Stratan (second place tie). The prize was established in 2009 thanks to a generous donation from TLN, and the awards will be presented by Marisa Ciarlitto, TLN’s VP Marketing.
We also inaugurate an important new collection that CERLAC is making available to students and researchers thanks to the efforts of Liisa North and Cease Levo: the library of the Latin American Working Group, a Toronto-based organization that worked on Latin American solidarity research and action for more than thirty years. The inauguration will feature a talk by historian Luis van Isschot, from the University of Toronto.
