Perspectives from the Field brings CLACS alumni from different eras to engage with current students and the NYU community at large. Moderated by CLACS Director, Professor Dylon Robbins, alumni will reflect on their research and personal experiences at CLACS and their professional journeys after. How does an interdisciplinary lens and expertise on Latin America and the Caribbean shape their work across multiple industries? Join us for this ongoing series and career-building opportunity.
For this session, we welcome Jan Hanvik (CLACS 1986) to talk about his experience leading local and international Arts and Education organizations.
