The MALCS Summer Institute 2008 is fast approaching! This year’s conference, themed “Mujeres (Re)member: Creating Spaces of (Be)longing Across Latinidades and Indigenismas,” will be held at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City from July 30th through August 2nd. The site committee has been working hard to prepare for your arrival. We are looking forward to providing a space that inspires you to reunite, rejuvenate, and reconnect with old and new hermanas. This year’s institute is guaranteed to be intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually powerful.
Please note that the deadline to submit your proposals is April 25th and the early registration deadline is May 5th. You will love our residential halls. These were built for the 2002 Winter Olympics and are very comfortable. Each room houses two people and two rooms share a bathroom!
Here are some of the Summer Institute events we have planned so far:
• “We Belong: Re(claiming) Our Bodies and Our Ways of Knowing”
• “Women Speak Out: Creating Spaces Through Art”
• “Indigenous Dialogues Across the Americas”
*Thursday evening outdoors excursion to one of our many surrounding beautiful canyons. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, as we avoid the hot and dry weather of the season!
*Friday Noche de Cultura: Navajo storyteller and dancer, Helen Hunt, and of course the opportunity to participate at an open mic.
*Saturday Baile at the brand new, locally-owned (MALCS Member) Mestizo Gallery and Coffee Shop
