The third lecture of the Croft Spring Speaker Series features Andrew Orta, associate professor of anthropology and director of the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. The talk, set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, is on the topic: "Forged Communities and Vulgar Citizens: Rescaling Indigenous Locality in Semi-Neoli." Orta has conducted ethnographic research with Aymara communities of Bolivia since 1989, focusing most recently on the impact of processes of neoliberal political decentralization on the reproduction of local community institutions and identities. Another recent project examines the internationalization of business curricula in the United States through ethnographic research with MBA students and faculty. Croft lectures are free and open to the public.
