EAU CLAIRE — A conference on Latin America will be held at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire May 6-7.
The conference, which is open to the public, is designed to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas about the history, culture, politics and economics of Latin America.
Activities during the conference include a keynote address by UW-Madison agricultural and applied economics professor Dr. Bradford Barham. His presentation is titled "Rainforests, Peasant Households, and the Future of Conservation and Development Initiative in the Amazon."
There also are a number of concurrent sessions presented by faculty, students, international students and community members scheduled during the conference, as well as a traditional Nicaraguan lunch.
