Beginning this spring, The Latin American Library will host a colloquium series featuring faculty whose research considers relationships between Latin America and New Orleans.

Marilyn Miller, Professor of Spanish and Sizeler Family Professor in Judaic Studies, Tulane University, will present new research on a mid-century New Orleans beautification project that immortalized Latin American independence leaders. Yuri Herrera-Gutiérrez, Professor of Spanish, Tulane University, will present on his novel-in-progress: “Juárez en Nueva Orleans. La ficción hecha de fragmentos de verdad.”
