Latin America And Its Place In World Life says
Latin America has assumed a key leadership role in exploring innovative solutions for restructuring societal inequity and promoting responsible development and the sustainable use of natural resources. Many of these efforts are based on popular, direct-democratic movements, including indigenous social movements. Eleven nations include multiculturalism and multilingualism in their constitutions, and an additional four recognize indigenous rights. Both the region’s $5.6 billion USD GDP (2013) and its population (600 million) place Latin America third in the world, and it’s 19,197,000 km2 make it the largest region on our globe.

Yet Latin America has been culturally misunderstood! While it is often treated as a single market with shared language, religion, history and culture, the region envelopes important differences. This highly experiential workshop will enable participants to explore the richness, complexity, irony, and promise of the hundreds of cultures that comprise Latin America.

Come and join Fernando Parrado and Dianne Hofner Saphiere in this new 3-day course: "Latin America and It's Place in World Life." It is Session 6, July 13-15, 2016, at the Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication in Portland, Oregon. Participants will receive a one-month subscription to Cultural Detective Online. It's going to rock! We look forward to seeing you there!
