We would like to invite you to a continuation of a series of events that the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Arizona has launched in Virtual Reality for the academic year of 2015-2016. They will take place at Cibola, the Department’s home in Second Life. The third conversation will be between Prof. Malcolm Compitello (The University of Arizona), Professors Susan Divine (College of Charleston) and Juliana Luna Freire (Framingham State University), and the new Cibola Manager Laura Vazquez Blazquez (ABD, The University of Arizona). It will be about the relationships between urban studies and Hispanic culture. It will begin this upcoming Thursday, Nov. 5, at 5:00 p.m. Tucson time.
We will be discussing three texts: Errejón, Martínez, and the Introduction, published at the Special Theme: Geografías del 15-M: Crisis, Austeridad y Movilización Social en España. All texts are available here: http://acme-journal.org/index.php/acme/issue/view/80
We will also be meeting on Nov. 19 (Thursday), to discuss the article by Bécquer Seguín entitled “Podemos and its critics”, published at the Radical Philosophy 193 (Sept/Oct. 2015).
We hope to see you at the event. In order to access Cibola, you will need to install Firestorm in your computer (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/cibola/26/180/28). If you need help, please contact any of us.
