Join the Lake Erie Latin American Culture Studies for short, provocative presentations and exciting discussions around five lines of inquiry:

Communities: human and nonhuman groups, collectives, cultures, identities, experts
and laypersons, social identities, social movements, migrations, ecocentrism,
environmental justice, activisms, speciesism.

Security/insecurity: practices; symbols; rhetoric; interdependence; vulnerability;
culpability; fear; globalization; hyperactivism; marginality; art activism; visuality;

Infrastructures: material and spectral ontologies; zones of surveillance, carcerality, and
sacrifice; processes of quantification, standardization, optimization, disembodiment; geobio-
techno political assemblages.

Waste: cross border flows and impacts of material waste, cultural concepts of waste, and
construction of certain bodies (human and nonhuman) as waste.

Materialities: stewardship of land, extractivist logic, quarantine, considerations of
scale, change of status of matter, evanescence and spectrality, resistance and performance
