Ties that Bind: Churches, Youth Gangs, and the Management of Everyday Life in Urban Latin America @ Valhalla, Cartwright Center, University of Wisconsin - La Crosse
Nov 4 @ 7:00 pm – 8:15 pm
Ties that Bind: Churches, Youth Gangs, and the Management of Everyday Life in Urban Latin America @ Valhalla, Cartwright Center, University of Wisconsin - La Crosse | La Crosse | Wisconsin | United States

Dr. Brendan Jamal Thornton, Assistant Professor of Anthropology, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

Ties that Bind: Churches, Youth Gangs, and the Management
of Everyday Life in Urban Latin America

Pentecostal churches and transnational youth gangs have more in common than simply their increasing popularity in urban neighborhoods across Latin America and the Caribbean. In a remarkably short period of time these emergent institutions have become regular fixtures in the social and cultural life of urban communities throughout the region. This lecture considers these institutions as similar and related with two goals in mind: first, to reflect on the simultaneous popularity of two seemingly irreconcilably different institutions; and second, to probe what this shared popularity might say about contemporary social life in urban barrios today.

Event is sponsored by UWL’s College of Liberal Studies Dean’s Office, Department of Archaeology/Anthropology, and the Institute for Latin American Studies, as well as the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

For more information about these events or the NCCLA conference, please contact Dr. Christine Hippert, Department of Archaeology and Anthropology (chippert@uwlax.edu).

How to Travel the World with Andy Stoll @ Viterbo Nursing Center, Room 196
Nov 10 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
How to Travel the World with Andy Stoll @ Viterbo Nursing Center, Room 196 | La Crosse | Wisconsin | United States

How to Travel the World with Andy Stoll is a “60-minute, high-energy, inspirational presentation that motivates listeners to explore the world with their eyes wide open. The talk culminates in his 4-year, 40-country solo trip around the world, while drawing lessons learned from some of Andy’s early life experiences that led him to undertake this seemingly impossible journey.

Andy’s presentation is much more than just a travel slideshow, its an insightful, inspiring, entertaining and often hilarious look at what it takes to find our place in the world and make our biggest dreams come true–whether that is to travel around the world, or something a little closer to home.” -http://www.andystoll.net/collegetour/
