2 more weeksThe Inaugural High School Student Symposium on Latina, Latino, and Latin American Studies (ISLAS) is less than two weeks away! We are expecting 30 students from the five boroughs of New York City to gather at Lehman College next Friday, June 21st, to share their research on topics ranging from U.S. immigration policy to the relationship between multinational corporations and natural resources in Latin America.

Symposium organizers again want to thank the students and teachers who have been hard at work in preparation for the day’s events. We understand the many demands on high schools at the end of the school year, from testing to graduation. ¬†We honor your commitment to pushing yourselves and your students to do more, to dig deeper, and to participate in the intellectual and civic life of the city beyond the classroom walls. We are extremely excited to hear the presentations and conversations generated by the student work.

We are finalizing the panel groups this week and will post that information here by this Friday.

*Please note: all final papers should be in by this Friday, June 14th. We also ask that students using powerpoint or other multimedia email us those files in advance of the symposium.
