Event Details

A Luther College tradition continues this year with the return of
“Paideia Texts and Issues Lecture Series.” Since 1983, Luther faculty
have presented research from a variety of disciplines, centered on a
common theme. This year the focus is on “Resistance and Resilience.”

All lectures will take place at 7 p.m. in the Center for Faith and Life
Recital Hall with receptions to follow in Qualley Lounge. Sponsored by
the Paideia Endowment, these events are always open to the public with
no charge for admission.

Anita Carrasco, associate professor of anthropology, presents
“Culture as Resistance in the Chilean Andes: An Indigenous Community’s
Struggle for Rights and Recognition”

Carruscowill present her research on Likantatay, an indigenous
community that, in 1991, intentionally relocated from marginal
conditions in rural pasturing land to the outskirts of Calama, Chile.
Carruscowill explain that their main objective was to reproduce what
they viewed as their “traditional” Atacameño community, but in an urban
space.
