I’d like to share my novel with you because it contains a great deal of Latin American history and politics. "In the 1980s, many countries in Latin America were struggling to break free from decades of dictatorial rule by despots propped up by the U.S. government. In the Land of the Feathered Serpent is the story of a bright but naïve young biologist with an oversized libido who finds himself on a Homeric journey of discovery in Central America and Mexico during this time." This novel will be of particular interest to those engaged with International Studies, Political Studies, History, and Romance Studies/Literature of Latin America. Available on Amazon www.featheredserpent.online www.facebook.com/LandOfTheFeatheredSerpent
In March 1863 heroic abolitionist and statesman Frederick Douglass, calls Black men to enlist in the Civil War, and fight for racial justice: “They tell you this is the ‘White man’s war’; that you will be no ‘better off after than before the war’; that the getting of you into the army is to sacrifice you on the first opportunity.’ Believe them not … “ Half a century later - across the Americas - the likes of Paul Robeson (USA), J.R.B. Whitney (Canada), and T. E. Marryshow (British West Indies [Caribbean]), inspire 300,000+ descendants of enslaved Africans to put their lives on the line in the First World War. Why did they enlist? Have they shaped attitudes and communities today? Our ‘Mutiny’ resource features rare video interviews with Black British WW1 veterans, along with a wealth of supporting sources for exploring these and other questions.

Interdisciplinary program at the College of Charleston.

Welcome to the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program (LACS) at the College of Charleston! Housed in the School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs, the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program promotes cultural exchange and interdisciplinary research in a key region of today's globalized communities and economies. The Program offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the study of the languages, literature, history, politics, art and culture of Latin America and the Caribbean. It allows for faculty members and students coming from a wide range of areas but with a common interest in the region to benefit from an intellectually stimulating trans disciplinary environment.
