"Obstacles and Opportunities: The Changing Landscape of Field Work in Latin America"

Registration is required: https://tfrcobstaclesandopportunities.eventbrite.com

The logistics of preliminary field work have always been challenging. From finding appropriate interlocutors to accessing archives, the process of conducting field work can be fraught with both known and unpredictable challenges. The pandemic has only exacerbated these challenges, at home and abroad. But it has also presented opportunities for students to integrate new approaches and technologies into their scholarship. We will present an inter-university panel of students.
