You can now register (click here) to the upcoming seminar of the Winter 2022 quarter, happening on Thursday, February 10, at 12-1 PM US CT. Professor Reynaldo A Morales (Northwestern University) will give a presentation entitled “The Roles of Journalism and Media in Indigenous Peoples’ Contributions to the Global Sustainable Development Goals.”

Abstract: The presentation is divided into three interrelated segments: it discusses Indigeneity in relation to the Sustainable Development Goals, the roles of journalism and media related to Indigenous Peoples’ rights to meaningful representation and their contributions to global sustainable development, and finally it introduces critical evolving policies in biodiversity conservation and climate change that are unique to Indigenous Peoples, and part of the emergent nexus research and practice that establishes interrelations between the 17 SDGs.

Reynaldo A Morales completed undergraduate Media studies at the University of Lima, Peru in the 80’s while working in TV Press. He holds an undergraduate degree in Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies, a Master of Science with the School of Education, and a joint PhD with the School of Education and the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies with the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Reynaldo will teach 2 undergraduate and graduate courses this upcoming Spring and will produce a documentary series in the Fall.

This event is co-sponsored by the Alice Kaplan Institute for the Humanities, the Buffett Institute for Global Affairs, the Center for Global Culture and Communication, the Department of Radio/Television/Film, the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program, and the Latina and Latino Studies Program.
