    Interested in Latin America, but not very familiar with CEDLA as an institute yet? Join our next info meeting about our intensive and multidisciplinary Advanced Master's in Latin American Studies (MLAS), telling you all about how you will become an expert on the region by developing your own research plan and independently conducting fieldwork in Latin America.

    The meeting is hosted by education coordinator Bente van de Nes and researcher-lecturer dr. Fabio de Castro. The meeting will be held at Zoom, on Tuesday 14/04/20 from 16:30 to 17:30 hours. You can join us without an account, by clicking in on the link to our meeting: https://uva-live.zoom.us/j/351525675

    We will be online at least 10 minutes in advance, so you can log on early to ensure that everything is working well before the start of the meeting.
    We hope to see you online!

  • NEW CEDLA PUBLICATION

  • What epidemics can teach us about burial places



    Having seen the shocking images of the coffins piled up in Italy on the internet, we need to ask ourselves whether we and the rest of the world are prepared for the considerable impact of the coronavirus epidemic. Christien Klaufus explains how metropolises in Latin America have been preparing their burial places for an epidemic for a while now. Perhaps we could learn something from them. READ
