Human Rights Across the Disciplines: A Tribute to Cuatrotablas:
Forty Years of Peruvian Collective and Political Theater

(FEBRUARY 29-MARCH 3, 2012)

On March 1st, The State of Iberoamerican Studies Series will honor Cuatroblas Theater (Lima-Perú) for its long-time intellectual and artistic association with the Spanish and Portuguese Theater Studies at the University of Minnesota, and for its forty years of work on behalf of Peruvian Collective and Political Theaters. From 9:15 am to 1:30 pm at Folwell Hall 108, an international group of Human Rights scholars and practitioners lead by Samir Yazbek (Sao Paulo-Brasil); Patricio Vallejo Aristizábal (Quito-Ecuador); Isabel Ortega (Spain-Brasil); Carlos Satizabal (Bogotá-Colombia); Beatriz Rizk (USA-Colombia); Eberto García Abreu (La Habana-Cuba); Maria Antonia Calvo (USA-Spain); Ana Forcinito (USA-Argentina); Raúl Marrero (USA-Cuba); and Luis Ramos-Garcia (USA-Perú) will engage in a public forum and round table discussion which will explore the significant role of Human Rights on Latin American political, and collective theatrical discourses. Although the main focus of the symposium will be Human Rights in Argentina, Brasil, Colombia, Spain and Peru, the panels will also discuss popular cultures, Immigration and legal issues across Latin America, Racial prejudice, Displacement of Women in Colombia and Peru as well as the role of postmodern political theater in Argentina and Brasil. Invited by Ana Forcinito, these international scholars will be joined by Miguel A. Repiso (REP), an Argentinian cartoonist who will work on a mural while the symposium takes place at Folwell 108.
