SIS celebrates alumnus (iSci, 2014) Rodrigo Narro Perez
SIS celebrates alumnus (iSci, 2014) and current sessional Rodrigo Narro Perez on co-founding the Latin American Network at McMaster University, which was recently featured in CBC news.
This new Hamilton network is out to change Latin American studies, while supporting students.
The network — called the Latin American Network at McMaster University, or LANMU — is composed of faculty, staff and students with ties to Latin America. A group came together with the idea last year and this past summer, they gave the network a name. It launched formally on Tuesday with this virtual event.
The group aims to celebrate the Latin American and Latinx communities — different terms people from the region identify with — at McMaster, as well as serve as a centre for research and teaching related to Latin America and its diasporas, according to Narro Pérez, who arrived in Canada from Lima, Peru, when he was 10 years old.
