LACS/PAIS Event -- March 16

It would be great to see geography faculty and students -- especially those who have studied or visited Latin America, at this event. Those who took Geography of Latin America last fall will remember that Dr. Shanahan was an excellent guest speaker! In general, these reflections on the literature of the realm can help us to understand its cultural geography.

Incidentally, LACS is soon changing its name to Pan-American and Iberian Studies (PAIS) to reflect the broader scope of studies taking place at BSU.
