Round Table Discussion about topics and images in photography and cinematography in Spain and Latin America. Led by Professor Azlin Perdomo.

For those of you aren't familiar, this is a fun and laid-back opportunity to further your knowledge of Latin American culture through exploring famous photographers from countries like Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, etc. Each weekly discussion focuses on a different aspect of Latin America's culture and history including immigration, war, economic & gender inequality, and revolution.

This is also an incredible opportunity to practice your Spanish in a casual setting, and all levels of fluency are encouraged to come!

For further information, please feel free to contact Nellie Spener (nrose@brandeis.edu). Hope to see you there!

Tavola ItalianaTavola Italiana Flyer

Questo semestre, abbiamo sei tavole italiane fantastiche!

Che cosa sono?
Ci incontriamo ad una tavola in Upper Usdan e parliamo in italiano– un modo molto divertente per praticare!

Note: each table lasts an hour as listed, but you can also stop by for just a few minutes.


Anyone interested in informally practicing their Spanish are welcome to attend Charlamos. Students attend weekly meetings to meet socially, speak Spanish, and to share ideas, music, and photos.

This Spanish language conversation group meets every Thursday in Shiffman 124 from 6 to 6:30, speaking informally in Spanish. Refreshments served.
