Arts, languages and philosophy invites the Spanish-speaking community at S&T to participate in the El Conversatorio event 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, via Zoom.
Guest speaker Dr. Carolina Sampó, visiting scholar of the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center at the University of Maryland, will present a talk titled “Crimen organizado en America Latina,” or “Organized Crime in Latin America.”
Sampó’s research focuses on gender, violence, organized crime and criminal organizations in South and Central America. She is a researcher at the Argentinean National Scientific and Technical Research Council (Conicet) and a coordinator of the Center for Studies on Transnational Organized Crime (CeCOT) at the International Relations Institute of the University of La Plata. Sampó is also an international consultant working for institutions such as the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime.
El conversatorio is a monthly, one-hour informal virtual talk in which guest speakers from different areas of the Spanish-speaking world share their thoughts on current events and issues. After a 15- to 20-minute presentation and a question-and-answer session, participants will have an opportunity to interact with each other and practice their Spanish.
