"Culture, Race and Religion: On the Construction of the Logic of Mestizaje in Latin America"

The arrival of Europeans to the Americas brought about a complex process of ethnocultural and racialized intermixture, which has come to be known as mestizaje. This session explores the intersection of racial, cultural and religious markers as contributing factors to the formation of colonial societies. It explores how these three markers helped create and shape the racialized ideology and logic of mestizaje as a divinely inspired foundational mechanism for the whitening of the population of these societies.

Dr. Néstor Medina is a Guatemalan-Canadian Scholar and assistant professor of religious ethics and culture at Emmanuel College of Victoria University in the University of Toronto. He received his Ph.D. from University of St. Michael's College, University of Toronto. He was the recipient of a First Book Grant for Minority Scholars (2014) and a Project Grant for Researchers (2018) from the Louisville Institute. He studies the intersection between people’s cultures, histories, ethnoracial relations and forms of knowledge. Among his numerous articles and publications, he is the author of Mestizaje: (Re)Mapping "Race," Culture, and Faith in Latina/o Catholicism (Orbis, 2009), a booklet On the Doctrine of Discovery (CCC, 2017) and his recent Christianity, Empire and the Spirit (Brill 2018).

The public is welcome!

Getting Your Letters of Recommendation for Law School Applications, Presented by Yale Law School

A representative from Yale Law School will be on site to speak in depth about the letters of recommendation portion of the law school application, as well as Yale Law School's specific program offerings and admissions processes.

Yale Law School is a community of commitment to world-class scholarship, to professional excellence, and to service for the greater good. J. D. students learn from a faculty of world-class scholars and skilled practitioners, and Yale Law School’s unmatched 7-to-1 student-faculty ratio allows students to be challenged and mentored by their professors in a very personal way.

Some students choose to focus on traditional “black-letter law” classes, while others experiment with cutting-edge legal theory or interdisciplinary courses. Students may undertake independent writing projects following their own academic interests or organize reading groups around a specific topic. As early as the spring of their first year, J.D. students gain first-hand experience with legal practice by participating in the Law School's many clinics, conferences, and other experiential learning courses.

In addition to Yale’s J.D. program, the graduate school offers a Master of Laws (LL.M.) program, open to those committed to a career in teaching law; a Doctor of the Science of Law (J.S.D.) program, open to graduates of the LL.M. program at Yale Law School; a Master of Studies in Law (M.S.L.) program for non-lawyers who wish to obtain familiarity with legal thought and explore how law relates to their discipline; and a Ph.D. in Law, offered in conjunction with Yale University's Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
