Listen to See: Knowledge and Indigenous Migrants

Youth celebrating the annual Desfile Peruano parade in Paterson, New Jersey
Emergent architectural designs, films, and fiestas are ways in which migrants have not only responded to dispossession, but also transmitted and transformed their ancestral beliefs. New urban designs, films, and fiestas are more than cultural productions; they are extensions of the self. For the Andean migrant, identity is not a mere abstraction, but a localized event that relies on the connections with people and space. They reproduce pre-Hispanic social views in which man and nature are one with each other. Lorena Cuya Gavilano, assistant professor of Languages and Cultures in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts, presents this session as part of the college's Humanities Lecture Series on Thursday, Oct. 19, 6:30 p.m., Cronkite Bldg., Room 128, Downtown Phoenix campus.
