Queen Mary U: Partnerships Manager – Latin America Initiatives (UK)


Partnerships Manager – Latin America Initiatives, Queen Mary University, London, UK. Deadline: 30 January 2023.

Queen Mary University of London is seeking a committed and professional individual with a strong track record delivering complex projects and programmes, to support the development of Queen Mary’s activities in Latin America. This exciting new opportunity will allow the postholder to play a critical role in a key area of expansion for Queen Mary. The Partnership Manager will be responsible for building activity through initiating and managing the full range of collaborative activities including – in the first instance – organising international committees, coordinating high-level visits, and ensuring that appropriate resources and processes are in place to facilitate the smooth-running of existing and new relationships in Latin America.

A collaborative and collegiate approach is essential to the success of the role, with the postholder expected to be comfortable working with a diverse array of internal and external stakeholders, managing a busy workload, and complex network of stakeholders. Experience managing international partnerships within a Higher Education setting is an advantage but not a pre-requisite for success in the role.

Editor: Dr. David Ramírez Plascencia
University of Guadalajara – System of Virtual University

In Latin America, the use of the Internet in general, and social media in particular, is one of the most significant activities between inhabitants. Social platforms are so important to Latin Americans that in many countries, like Mexico and Brazil, almost all Internet users, more than 200 million in between both countries, have at least one profile on these platforms. And new information technologies are continuously arriving in the region as well, from the internet of things to artificial intelligence, robots, and the instant tracking of transportation and delivery, all of which are conspiring not only to change the domestic social and economic environment, but to transform social and economic links across the region and externally with the outside world. In a real sense, the internet has cut the region’s geographical moorings and plunged it and its inhabitants into an integrated and multi-tiered global virtual space.

Mobilizing at the Margins: Citizenship, Identity, and Democracy
LAGO Graduate Student Conference
February 5-7th, 2015
New Orleans, LA
Deadline for Submissions: October 24th, 2014
Length of Submissions: 300 words or less

Tulane University’s Latin American Graduate Organization (LAGO) invites your abstract submissions for the 2015 Graduate Conference where you can meet graduate scholars, faculty, and community leaders interested in Latin America, explore the city, and experience the unique Mardi Gras season in New Orleans!

This year’s conference encourages participants to engage with historical and emerging confrontations and reconfigurations of national identification, expressions of individual or communal identity, performances of citizenship, and reimaginings of democracy within the context of Latin America. Latin America and the Caribbean encompass vast cultural, linguistic, and geographic diversity, making the region a subject of prolific scholarly study across disciplines. Within this complexity, conceptualizations of citizenship, identity, and democracy are constantly being negotiated, contested, and reframed in a multitude of contexts. These various encounters highlight the ways in which individuals interact with their communities, how communities define themselves within and/or beyond the framework of national borders, and how power and politics play out in an increasingly interconnected and decentralized global community.

With this broad theme in mind, LAGO invites graduate scholars across disciplines to submit abstracts exploring mobilizations of citizenship, identity and democracy from the physical, societal and theoretical margins of Latin America and the Caribbean region for LAGO’s 2015 graduate student conference. LAGO encourages participants to interpret this theme as they see fit. We invite submissions in English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and Haitian Creole for consideration.

Submit your abstract by Friday, October 24th, 2014. Please circulate widely.

“Movilización en los Márgenes: Ciudadanía, Identidad, y Democracia”
Conferencia de Estudiantes Licenciados LAGO
5-7 de Febrero, 2015
Nueva Orleans, Luisiana
Fecha para entregar Solicitaciones: 24 de Octubre, 2014
Extensión de Solicitación: 300 palabras o menos

La Organización Latinoamericana de Estudiantes Licenciados (LAGO) en la Universidad de Tulane le invita a hacer entrega de su solicitación para la próxima Conferencia de Estudiantes Licenciados donde podrá conocer a otros alumnos licenciados, facultad, y líderes comunitarios interesados en América Latina. Tendrá también la oportunidad de explorar la ciudad y vivir la especial tradición de ‘Mardi Gras’ en Nueva Orleans!

Este año la conferencia anima que sus participantes se comprometan con enfrentamientos históricos y emergentes, re-configuraciones de identificación nacional, expresiones de identidad individual o comunal, desempeños de ciudadanía, y re-imaginaciones de democracia dentro del contexto de América Latina. Latinoamérica y el Caribe abarcan una gran diversidad cultural, lingüística y geográfica, convirtiendo a la región en un tema de estudio académico prolífico a través de varias disciplinas. Dentro de dicha complejidad, conceptualizaciones de ciudadanía, identidad, y democracia son constantemente negociadas, disputadas, y se encuadran dentro de una multitud de contextos. Estos diversos encuentros destacan las formas en la cual personas interactúan con sus comunidades, cómo las comunidades se definen a sí mismos dentro y/o fuera del marco de las fronteras nacionales, y cómo el poder y la política se desarrollan dentro de una comunidad mundial cada vez más interconectada y descentralizada.

Con este amplio tema en mente, LAGO invita a alumnos licenciados a través de las disciplinas a entregar solicitudes que exploren las movilizaciones de ciudadanía, identidad, y democracia dentro de los márgenes físicos, sociales y teóricos de América Latina y el Caribe para la conferencia LAGO del 2015. LAGO invita que los participantes interpreten dicho tema como mejor les parezca. Para que se le considere, le invitamos que mande solicitudes en Inglés, Español, Portugués, Francés, y Criollo Haitiano.

Envíen sus solicitaciones. La fecha final de entrega de reseñas es el viernes, 24 de octubre del 2014.

De 5 a 7 de fevereiro de 2015

Prazo de entrega: até 24 de outubro de 2014
Limite de palavras para entregas:  até 300 palavras

A Organização de Pós-Graduação de Estudos Latinoamericanos (LAGO) da Universidade de Tulane convida todos interessados a entregarem resumos para o Congresso de Pós-Graduação de 2015, onde poderão encontrar alunos de pós-graduação, professores e líderes na comunidade interessados pela América Latina, como também poderão explorar a cidade e aproveitar a época singular de Mardi Gras em New Orleans. O Congresso deste ano sugere que os participantes analisem confrontos e mudanças históricas ou emergentes referentes aos seguintes temas: identificação nacional; expressões tanto de identidade individual quanto popular; práticas de cidadania; e construções da democracia no interior da América Latina. A América Latina e o Caribe contêm uma ampla diversidade, tanto cultural, quanto linguística e geográfica, o que as tornam regiões importantes por possibilitarem numerosos estudos a partir de diferentes perspectivas e metodologias. Dentro dessa complexidade, conceitualizações de cidadania, identidade e democracia são constantemente negociadas, contestadas e reformuladas em uma multiplicidade de contextos. Esses diversos encontros demostram as maneiras de como os indivíduos interagem com suas comunidades, como as comunidades se definem dentro e/ou fora de uma estrutura do imaginário nacional e como poder e política acabam numa comunidade global que segue sendo ainda mais interconectada e descentralizada.

Considerando-se a amplitude desse tema, LAGO convida estudantes de pós-graduação de qualquer disciplina para submeterem à apreciação resumos que investiguem  mobilizações de cidadania, identidade e democracia, desde os aspectos físicos até os sociais e teóricos da América Latina e da região do Caribe para o  Congresso Estudantil de Pós-graduação de LAGO de 2015. LAGO incentiva que os participantes interpretem esse tema como considerarem. Nós aceitaremos os textos escritos em inglês, espanhol, português e crioulo haitiano.

« Mobilisation aux marges : La citoyenneté, l’identité et la démocratie »
Une conférence de LAGO pour des étudiants de troisième cycle
5 février – 7 février 2015
New Orleans, LA
Date limite de soumettre un résumé : 24 octobre 2014
Prière de limiter le résumé à 300 mots

L’Organisation des Études Avancées d’Amérique Latine (LAGO) de l’Université de Tulane vous invite à soumettre un résumé d’exposé à la Conférence LAGO de 2015.  Cette conférence réunira des chercheurs et des leaders communautaires qui s’intéressent aux études d’Amérique Latine pour se faire des relations, pour partager leurs connaissances, pour explorer la ville de la Nouvelle Orléans et pour profiter de la saison de carnaval!

La conférence de 2015 encourage ses participants à s’engager aux conflits historiques et émergents et aux réorganisations de l’identité nationale, de l’expression individuelle ou communautaire, aux performances de citoyenneté et aux réorganisations de démocratie en Amérique Latine.  L’Amérique Latine et les Caraïbes englobent une diversité extrême des cultures, des langues et de la géographie : cette diversité explique la richesse et la prolifération des études latino-américaines dans toutes les disciplines académiques.  Dans le cadre de cette complexité, les conceptualisations de citoyenneté, d’identité et de démocratie existent dans un flux de négociation, de contestation et de recadrage dans des situations diverses. Ces rencontres variés mettent l’accent sur les façons par lesquelles l’individu communique avec sa communauté, les façons par lesquelles la communauté se définit à l’intérieur ou au-delà des frontières nationales et les enjeux de pouvoir, de puissance et de politique dans la communauté mondiale où tout est de plus en plus interrelié et de plus en plus décentralisé.

En tenant compte de ce thème général, LAGO invite des étudiants de troisième cycle à soumettre des résumés d’exposé qui explore les mobilisations de la citoyenneté, de l’identité et de la démocratie à partir des marges physiques, culturelles et théoriques d’Amérique Latine et des Caraïbes afin de faire un exposé à la conférence de 2015.  LAGO encourage chaque participant d’interpréter ce thème à sa guise.  Nous considérons des soumissions en anglais, en espagnol, en portugais, en français et en créole haïtien.

Prière d’envoyer vos propositions de communication ici. Date limite: 24 Octobre, 2014. Prière de diffuser largement.
