Three graduate students in the Department of Anthropology participated in a conference in Guatemala using the Polycom system available at Vanderbilt. The conference was part of IV Colloquia on Anthropology and Sociology, organized by the Universidad del Valle in Guatemala. The students presented preliminary data collected last summer in Guatemala, research supported by the CLAS summer grants. Ixchel Carmelina Espantzay Serech spoke on “Percepciones y decepciones: Las candidatas mayas en las elecciones del 2011 en Guatemala,” Tatiana Paz Lemus presented her research on “Educación y desarrollo: explorando sus intersecciones desde Tactic, Alta Verapaz,” and Felipe A. Girón gave a talk titled “Entre el presente democrático y el pasado autoritario: trayectorias de vida y contexto social en el Oriente de Guatemala, el caso de Zacapa.”
