    Wednesday, October 23, 6:30-8:30p.m., Leo A. Guthart Cultural Center Theater
    Presentation: "Hunting Season: Immigration and Murder in an All-American Town." On November 2008 in Patchogue, New York a 37-year-old undocumented Ecuadorian immigrant Marcelo Lucero was attacked and murdered by a group of teenagers who had decided that night to go hunting for what they referred to as “beaners.” After Lucero’s murder, Patchogue was placed in the eye of a political storm regarding immigration, hate crimes, and tolerance in small towns. As we approach the 5-year anniversary of Marcelo Lucero’s death, it is important to recognize that hunting season isn’t over.

    Mirta Ojito, Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and Columbia University professor, author of the book Hunting Season: Immigration and Murder in an All-American Town

This panel will examine some of these issues, with an eye on how recent developments will impact U.S. policy in the region. Co-sponsored by the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program, LACS.

      Dr. Brenda Elsey: "Citizens and Sportsmen: The Politics of Football in Chile, 1905-1973"
      3:00 P.M. in the seminar room of Heger Hall.
      This chapter is part of my manuscript (under review) Citizens and Sportsmen: the Politics of Chilean Football, 1905-1973. Chapter six, entitled, “The New Left, Popular Unity, and Football, 1963-1973," examines the emergence of the “New Left” and a youth culture in the 1960s. It then moves to the period of the leftist Popular Unity government of Salvador Allende, which lasted from 1970 to 1973. Despite the growth of the professional football industry, amateurs constituted an important base for political mobilization. Football clubs and other civic associations helped provide resources to working-class neighborhoods despite blockades, hording, and threats from paramilitaries. Moreover, they organized public support for the Popular Unity government. This type of support was crucial as the administration faced economic sanctions from the United States, political violence, and a deteriorating relationship with the Christian Democrats. This chapter shifts the focus away from the upper-echelons of party leadership to argue for the importance of popular culture in understanding ways in which people created and understood political identity. Furthermore, this chapter illustrates the importance of popular cultural practices in shaping and implementing the UP agenda. This has wide ranging implications given that the enthusiasm for a new Socialist culture emerged at the same time as mass advertisement. Despite technological innovations that made it easier for multinational corporations to reach consumers via popular culture, they failed to co-opt youthful rebellion and convince audiences to reconcile with authority.
      Please send any questions regarding this talk to Dr. Brenda Elsey via email.

      My Mother Has Been Kidnapped!
      The Problem of Political Kidnappings in Colombia
      Maria Fernanda Perdomo is the daughter of Consuelo de Perdomo, a former Colombian Congresswoman kidnapped on the 10th of September, 2001. Her mother was part of a group of 54 Colombians (politicians and military personnel) and three Americans that the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) guerrilla tried to exchange for imprisoned guerrillas. Maria Fernanda has been fighting for three years and seven months to find a way to bring them to liberty. She has worked with families of hostages to reach a reasonable and humanitarian agreement between the Colombian Government and the FARC. She has interacted not only with the Colombian Government and the guerrillas, but also with the international community (United Nations, European Parliament, State Department, NGOs, governments of other countries, the United States Congress, Catholic Church, etc.), and mass media (BBC, Spanish Television, CNN, and local media, etc). Now, Maria Fernanda wants to share her experiences with you.
