Merienda Brown-Bag Lectures
The Center's Merienda lectures, held most Thursdays during the fall and spring semesters, provide an opportunity for invited students, faculty, community members and visiting scholars to share their experiences and research in Latin America.
The speakers represent a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds. Presentations typically last 40-45 minutes and allow for audience questions at the end. A simple lunch of rice and beans is served.
Meriendas take place in Bailey Hall, Room 318 from 12:00-1:00pm.
