Description:

Throughout the academic year, the Center for Latinx Digital Media invites you to a series of weekly seminars held over Zoom on Thursdays. You can now register (click here) for the upcoming seminar for the Fall 2022 quarter, happening on September 22, at 12-1 PM US CT.

Judith Mariscal will give a presentation entitled "The role of digital policy in catalyzing a more equitable development." 

Abstract: Despite the great progress made in the region in the development of the Internet, access to affordable, quality services has not been provided to a segment of the population. The crisis generated by COVID-19 is shedding light on this and making the importance of network connections even more visible. It is important to analyze universal access policies and programs in Latin America in order to obtain some answers and thus acquire lessons and best practices. 

Judith Mariscal is Executive Director at Centro LATAM Digital, research professor at CIDE and member at its highest level of the National System of Researchers. Her research focuses on the role of digital technologies for development in Latin America.  

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 Communication Studies, the Latina and Latino Studies Program, and the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program.
