The Spanish course SPAN377 Latin American Cultures, led by the Adjunct Instructor of Spanish Manuel Gómez-Navarro, joined forces with Boise State University’s Center for Global Engagement in the 100k Strong cultural exchange initiative. Within this endeavor, the students in SPAN377, including Kya, Nicole, Yisel, Preston, Nathan, Shelby, Anna, Liam, and Keslee, were afforded the unique opportunity to partake in a presentation on Peru and engage in a cultural exchange experience with students and faculty from the Andean region.
The overarching aim of this program is to foster sustainable collaboration among the Universidad Científica del Sur (Peru/Law), Universidad Tecnológica Privada de Santa Cruz (Bolivia), and Boise State University. The guiding framework for this effort is dedicated to achieving gender equality and empowering women and girls. The ultimate objective is to establish a network of scholars who share a common interest in infusing global perspectives into college curricula, thereby equipping students to engage in action research and contribute to meaningful social change.

Gómez-Navarro also made a presentation on “Project Presentation: “La noche boca arriba”. An Inmersive Literary Experience” at the IATLC (Idaho Association of Teachers of Language and Culture) in Boise State University, on October 21. This international project has been developed together with Dr. Álvaro Llosa (University of Oslo, Norway.)
