LAII Lecture Series: Trauma as Cultural Legibility in BANG
UNM Latin American & Iberian Institute – Full Title: Trauma as Cultural Legibility in BANG: Researching and Writing the Contemporary Narconovela Join the Department of Spanish & Portuguese and the LAII for a presentation with noted author Daniel Peña. Research is key to world-building in any novel. But where should a writer start? And how much research should one integrate into the fictional landscape of any given work? Peña will present on the evolution of his debut novel, BANG, from inception to publication and the way research guided the various drafts along the way. He’ll also discuss resources for writers writing about Latin America with a special focus on Mexico and the contemporary drug war as well as common pitfalls and hang-ups he experienced in writing BANG and the strategies he used to overcome them. Peña is a Pushcart Prize-winning writer and Assistant Professor in the Department of English at the University of Houston-Downtown. Formerly, he was based out of the UNAM in Mexico City where he worked as a writer, blogger, book reviewer, and journalist. He is a Fulbright-Garcia Robles Scholar and a graduate of Cornell University. His fiction has appeared in Ploughshares, The Rumpus, the Kenyon Review Online, Callaloo, and Huizache among other venues. He’s currently a regular contributor to the Guardian and the Ploughshares blog and his novel, BANG, is forthcoming from Arte Publico Press. He lives in beautiful Houston, Texas.

K-12 Educator's Workshop on Theatre of the Oppressed
UNM Latin American & Iberian Institute – Join us as we explore the Theatre of the Oppressed. Based in the work of Brazilian educator and activist Paulo Freire, Theatre of the Oppressed was developed by Brazilian dramatist and activist Augusto Boal who sought, in his words, to “turn non-actors into actors, in the theater, and In society.” The practice is intended to engage with and empower communities. The first half of the workshop will be led by Dr. Ricky Lee Allen, Associate Professor in the UNM College of Education, who will provide a brief overview of Paulo Freire’s life (1921-1997), historical context, and major ideas. The second half of the evening will be led by community organizer María José Ramos, who will provide an overview of Theatre of the Oppressed and offer examples of the ways in which it has been used to address issues in communities and K-12 classrooms. Participants will have hands-on opportunities to practice these techniques. This workshop is sponsored by the UNM Latin American & Iberian Institute with support from the US Department of Educational Title VI. Classroom resources, certificates of professional development, and refreshments will be provided.

Click here for info on AMP Membership. Regular on-sale is Friday, Nov. 10 at 10 AM. Sylvan Esso began as a chance meeting, followed by a couple of risky cross-country relocations that coalesced into ten songs. It became very clear early on that these songs were the product of sheer alchemy; Amelia's effortlessly acrobatic melodic reflections complimented Nick's dynamic compositions in ways that were as unlikely as they were undeniable. When it started it was whisper quiet, a slight frame, something almost domestic but gleaming with excitement. Then it made contact with the air. The duo found themselves on a three-year worldwide swirl of planes, buses, vans, venues, festival stages, hotel rooms, radio stations and television studios. It's difficult to draw distinctions. We frequently have to work as a group to remember the chronology and version of events, but the stories that make us howl with laughter or shake our heads in bewilderment are crystal clear. Throughout this process there was an underlying truth that remained this shred of creative excitement in what was at times a monotonous grind: that this is just the beginning. But what's next? Surely it's not just these ten songs? Then something happened on a summer afternoon in New York as Nick tuned a broken synthesizer to the pitch of Amelia's voice while she sang a new mantra. It seemed fitting that Sylvan Esso's first implementation of the process was for the human to tune the machine, not the other way around. The lines between instrument and voice, programmed and improvised, Amelia and Nick, began to blur. This reverse auto-tune created the sonic blueprint for new music and seemed to articulate something the band was searching for; a need to connect with the light of humanity in our overly stimulated world; seeking the signal amidst the noise. Over the next 18 months the band constructed and shaped these songs at their studio in Durham, North Carolina as well as extended stays in the paralyzing rural Wisconsin winter and the dry desert heat of downtown Los Angeles. Sylvan Esso's sophomore album What Now is out now on Loma Vista Recordings.
