Civically Engaged Youth in the Americas Conference Coming Up September 20

Chapin Hall Center for Children at the University of Chicago is co-sponsoring the conference “Civically Engaged Youth in the Americas: A Three City Perspective – Chicago, Mexico City and Rio de Janeiro” on September 20 in Chicago. The conference is hosted by the Latin American and Latino Studies Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago and will include presentations about youth activism by professors, youth organizers, and youth. The event stems from a comparative study undertaken by three researchers, including Chapin Hall Faculty Associate Maria de los Angeles Torres. Chapin Hall Executive Director Matthew Stagner will give the welcoming remarks and Research Fellow Robert Chaskin will offer comments on the presentations.

For more information and to register, e-mail Nawojka Lesinski at nlesin2@uic.edu by September 10. Read Torres’s related report, Youth Activists in the Age of Postmodern Globalization: Notes from an Ongoing Project. The conference website is http://www.uic.edu/las/latamst/.
