Interdisciplinary Faculty Colloquia

The Interdisciplinary Faculty Colloquia series aims to provide a space where FIU faculty and advanced graduate students have the opportunity to present their research, exchange ideas with researchers in different disciplines, and nurture new projects. It is, primarily, a resource to promote FIU’s academic dialogue and research on Latin America and the Caribbean.
