Bienvenidos/as, boas-vindas, and welcome back to the Heidelberg Center for Ibero-American Studies! In today’s issue of the HCIAS Newsletter, we invite you to meet a new visiting fellow and learn about new HCIAS publications and the latest scientific presentations by HCIAS scholars.


HCIAS Junior Professor Soledad Álvarez Velasco has participated in two events on migration in Latin America. On March 17th, Soledad participated in the inaugural session of the seminar “(In)mobilities in the Americas. Practices of life and practices of death around migrations, forced displacement and international protection”, organized by Amarela Varela Huerta (UACM), Mariana Zaragoza (University of Deusto) and Soledad Álvarez (HCIAS).
This week, on March 22th, Soledad participated virtually in the seminar Public Advocacy in Migration and Refugees at the Javeriana University in Bogota, Colombia, addressing the topic “Critical Migration and Border Studies: The Thesis of the Autonomy of Migrations and its Applicability”.
HCIAS director Francisco Moreno-Fernández was invited to give a talk on March 18th at Collegio Futuro, a joint interdisciplinary PhD college of the 4EU+ member universities including Heidelberg University. In his presentation “Languages, Environment and Greenspeak”, Francisco analyzed the connection between language and the environment by discussing why ecology needs languages and discourse to interpret and explain the environmental challenges and how the future of nature will be largely conditioned by this discourse.


New visiting fellow

Based on an corpus analysis of Brazilian media, the paper explores in what ways older people are associated with the COVID-19 virus and to what extent, and whether they are exposed to specific discrimination as a population group.
