Dig Deeper: Spotlight on Bolivia

By now, I’m sure you’re aware of the upcoming talk on Bolivian popular culture as part of Hispanic Heritage Month.

But you might not know that the library maintains a number of resources for you to read up on current developments in Bolivia. Through ProQuest and ProQuest Newsstand, you can find a number of recent magazine and news articles that do not require you to be scholar or expert on Bolivian history and culture to understand.

Take a peak at these pieces to catch up:

Bill Gates Sparks Bolivian Controversy

Term Limit becomes a Hot Topic in Bolivia

IDB Approves Large Humanitarian Project in Bolivia

A Student’s Bolivian Adventure

These articles highlight several topics that may be interesting to bring up at tonight’s lecture. Does international attention aid in improving Bolivia? Or does it subvert the nation’s own popular culture? Are the leaders of Bolivia taking advantage of their positions? Or are outside pressures preventing them from effective governance?

You might find the answers to these questions and many more at tonight’s presentation, In Search of Popular Culture in the Bolivian Nation Building Process, by Villanova professor Dr. Jaime Omar Salinas Zabalaga. The Romance Languages Department and the Latin American Studies Program co-sponsor this event with the Falvey Memorial Library.
