"Anger is the spark.  You know, anger is good sometimes. It's good if it moves you to action." - Dr. Betina Kaplan, Co-founder, ULead Athens Dr. Betina Kaplan teaches Latin American cultures and literatures at the University of Georgia. In 2010 she became angered by the policies banning undocumented students from the top 5 public universities in Georgia. Betina shares how anger inspired her to take action - she became part of the founding group of Freedom University in Atlanta, a safe space for undocumented students to continue their education. In 2014, she also co-founded ULead Athens, a volunteer organization enabling college access for immigrant students and students from immigrant families - where she continues her work today. Thank you for supporting Latina South podcast!

Crucifixion and sexual abuse

Introduction "The Bible is always read with a context in mind. Assumptions are made about the original social context of the text and these are most often derived—consciously or otherwise— from the current social context of the reader or critic. In recent decades the positive value of recognizing these connections has been advocated by contextual theologies in Latin America and elsewhere. Although some critics have rightly cautioned against temptations to superficially equate contemporary social contexts and the biblical world, those committed to a contextual approach have maintained that, when used appropriately, a serious engagement with current social contexts can offer insights into the biblical context and hence into neglected aspects of the biblical text. One area where I believe that shared similarities between past and present contexts can be most usefully investigated is the political arena of state terror and the use of torture for this end. Latin American military regimes used terror in the 1970s and 1980s to create fear and promote fatalism throughout the whole of society. An understanding of this provides a context to recognize Roman crucifixions as instruments of state terror. Furthermore, Latin American torture practices involved deliberate attempts to shame the victims and undermine their sense of dignity. Physical torture and assaults were often coupled with psychological humiliation in attempts to end the victim's will to resist, or even to live. Sexual assaults and sexual humiliation are a particularly effective way to do this, and are commonplace in torture practices past and present. This article argues that torture practices can offer a deeper understanding of Roman crucifixion as a form of state terror which included sexual abuse. The analysis below draws on Latin American reports, but a similar reading could be offered through attention to torture in many other contexts, including torture and prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib. To raise the question of sexual abuse in relation to Jesus may at first seem inappropriate. However, the Gospel accounts indicate a striking level of public sexual humiliation in the treatment of Jesus, and even this may not disclose the full horror of Jesus' torture before his death. Although this may be a very disturbing suggestion at first, at a theological level, a God who has identified with the victims of sexual abuse can be recognized as a positive challenge for contemporary Christian understanding and response. At a pastoral level, it could help sensitize people to the experiences of those who have suffered sexual abuse and, in some cases, might even become a healing step for the victims themselves."

Derek's inspiration to create Café Conmigo originated from a trip he took to Argentina. It was there that he fell in love with a quaint little cafe, which featured delicious coffee served in a tranquil space and enveloped with ample arrangements of lush green plants. During his time in college, he developed a further affection for Latin American culture through the relationships he nurtured with his many Spanish-speaking friends. Although he attended school in Austin, Texas, he felt as though he was studying abroad due to the highly diverse make-up of the student body. The name of Derek's coffee shop is Spanish for “coffee with me,” and it pays homage to this significant period of his life.Derek's drive to become an entrepreneur began at an early age with his involvement in the family business. His parents' work ethic made a lasting impression on him, and they often encouraged their son to work for himself.

Although he was interested in boutique hotels and restaurants, Derek felt that launching a café allowed him to test his hand at hospitality, albeit in a way that was in better alignment with his current level of food and beverage experience.

Liberation theology isn't just a thing that happened in the 60's and 70's. Many of the folks involved in liberation theology are still around and publishing, but their voices are strangely missing from contemporary conversations around Latin American politics. In this episode, we get a little cranky about the lack of coverage around liberation theology and talk about why it matters.

In this episode of Project Management Office Hours Ricardo Vargas joins PMO Joe for an exciting discussion on the topics of Transformation, Crisis Management, Project Economy, passion in work-life balance, and more! We talk about work-life balance and how we can manage having a life outside of work. The moment we reverse it to say it is a life-work balance is the moment we gain control and passion for what we are doing. Balance will fall into place because we realize what to prioritize. Ricardo talks about this further with Joe and describes “When you think that there is a work life balance, you are in some way saying that when you work, you don't live. So, you need to stop working to start living. And for me, in the end, there is only life. This is my passion component.” -Ricardo “At the UN, the projects are driven by an extraordinarily keen sense of how you can improve people's lives through rebuilding cities after disaster or war-torn countries. On the other side, the environment is how can you help your client to save money? But in the end, both have the same intention to increase the efficiency of things we want to do.” -Ricardo Specializing in implementing innovative global initiatives, capital projects and product development, Ricardo has directed dozens of projects across industries and continents, managing more than $20 billion in global initiatives over the past 25 years. Ricardo shares his expertise with millions of professionals around the globe through his “5 Minutes Podcast,” which he's hosted since 2007. He has written 15 books on numerous topics and his influence on the sector was affirmed when he became the first Latin American to be elected Chairman of the Project Management Institute.

Gonzalo Blanco, Quansa: Building the future of financial health in Latin America, Ep 152   For years, Gonzalo Blanco and Mafalda Barros have seen how the misaligned incentives in Latin American financial products push the average person to make bad financial decisions. Due to this lack of guidance, people improvise and spend money without realizing the impact that their decisions have on their financial health.    This frustration with the lack of financial education led them to found Quansa, a corporate benefits platform focused on employee financial wellbeing. We invested in Quansa's last round and are excited to support them on their mission to promote employee financial health throughout the region.   In this episode, I sat down with Gonzalo to talk about why the incentives in Latin American financial products are broken and how Quansa aims to change that. Gonzalo also shares his lessons learned from working in the corporate world, participating in Pear.vc's accelerator, and going through the fundraising process in the US and Latin America. Pushing for employee financial health with no hidden agenda Latin Americans historically don't trust financial institutions. Banks and financial institutions push products on their clients, and many make bad decisions. However, through Quansa's digital diagnostic and personal financial coach, clients have transparency and can easily understand the impact of their decisions.    Learn more about how employees can incorporate healthy financial habits with Quansa in this episode of Crossing Borders. Transitioning from 10 years in the corporate world   Gonzalo explains that there is no perfect recipe for a person's decision to transition from the corporate world into entrepreneurship. For him, it was a matter of understanding the opportunities that would be available to him if he decided to continue working for a corporation. It was important for him to learn about company processes from larger organizations that had perfected them over time, but for the next step in his career, he wanted to be able to work with more speed and fewer limitations.    Listen to this episode of Crossing Borders to learn more about the lessons Gonzalo learned from working for a corporation. From Stanford's GSB to the Pear Accelerator 2020 The idea for Quansa originated in Stanford's Graduate School of Business when Gonzalo was taking a class called Startup Garage, part of his Master's program. Gonzalo and Mafalda were focusing on solving for financial health in Latin America. At that moment, they met Mar Hershenson from Pear VC who invited them to participate in Pear's Accelerator. It opened a world of opportunities for them.   Check out this episode of Crossing Borders to learn more about how they attracted investors from the US and Latin America.   Gonzalo Blanco is providing a financial solution to the Latin American market that has employees' best interests in mind with Quansa. With Mafalda, they are striving to change the way Latin Americans spend their money, putting their financial wellbeing first.   Outline of this episode: [1:46] - About Quansa [4:55] - The entrepreneurial ‘itch' [6:15] - Transition from the corporate world [10:26] - On meeting his co-founder [12:47] - Misaligned incentives in financial solutions [24:30] - Quansa's fundraising process [28:00] - Advice to Gonzalo's younger self  [29:49] - Books, blogs, and podcast recommendations [31:20] - What's next for Quansa?

Most of the pressure on oil companies to make more environmentally-conscious investments is targeted at companies like Shell, Total and Exxon. But companies like these produce only 15 percent of the world's oil and gas supply.  The majority of oil production comes from nationally-owned oil companies, and the question of how they will respond to the clean energy transition is especially vital in Latin America where state-owned companies like PDVSA, PetroBras and Pemex dominate the region's energy sector.  In this episode, Host Jason Bordoff speaks with a leading expert on oil markets and Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) agenda in Latin America -- Dr. Luisa Palacios. She has special insight into this topic as a former board chair of the oil refiner Citgo, an energy firm owned by the Venezuela-based PDVSA.  Dr. Palacios is currently a Senior Research Scholar at the Center On Global Energy Policy and received a Masters degree at the Center. Previously, she was Medley Global Advisor's Head of Latin America. She also worked at Barclays Capital as a Director in the emerging markets research. Dr. Palacios spoke with Jason about where Venezuela and other Latin American oil majors are headed in a moment of big market shifts. They also took a broader look at the future of oil and ESG practices in the Latin American Region.

What's the name that you give when a barista asks? There's a good chance that it's not the one that's on your license or what your friends call you. Fran Meneses knows all about that, having grown up in Chile and living most of her adult life in Germany, the UK, and now the US. The Brooklyn-based queer illustrator is known for her insightful comics that she posts to her popular Instagram account @frannerd, and her YouTube channel by the same name that gives viewers a peek behind the scenes. But the path to settling in her cozy Brooklyn studio wasn't exactly how she sketched it out to be. Starting with everything—and she means everything—going wrong upon arrival in Germany, to realizing the idyllic life she created in England wasn't so idyllic after all, Fran has channeled those challenges into growing as a storyteller and illustrator. Her Chilean-accented English that used to cause her such shame now empowers her to share tidbits of her immigrant experience through her art.Her latest challenge is a 250-page sci-fi graphic novel, which she admits to having started and scrapped a couple of times now. Working on something long-term in this instant gratification world can be daunting, but Fran says she likes to keep her audience involved with the process so that she doesn't feel so far away from her community. Listen to this week's episode to hear more about her projects and how she's reframing what it means to be a queer Latinx content creator. Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Amazon Music, Stitcher, iHeartRadio, or on your favorite podcast platform.Topics Covered:Living abroad as a Latinx personThe struggles & privileges of being a white-passing LatinaHonoring your culture through artDiscovering your voice as a storyteller and illustratorFinding the courage to create your own career pathGuest InfoConnect with Fran on Instagram, Patreon, and Youtube.

When Katty decided to move with her now-husband from Bogotá, Colombia to Miami at age 19, her whole family thought she was crazy. She quickly learned that she would have to acclimate to a new way of life including learning that her aspirations for being an artist and illustrator couldn't be satisfied at the state university where she was attending college. It wasn't until she moved to DC and attended MICA where she found a community of fellow creatives and built the graphic design skills she needed to become a more well-rounded and professional illustrator. Her first big commission came from the art director at Lenny Letter - an opportunity Katty said she jumped at. She realized that this whole illustration thing could actually become a fulfilling career. You can now find Katty's colorful work featured on nbcnews.com, The Today Show, and many other notable clients such as Adobe, HBO Max, and even The New York Times. Nothing beats a recent project she calls “a dream job.” Katty created the key art for Disney's Diary of a Future President and hopes to do more key art in the future. We discuss the details of Katty's artistic process and how it has changed as she gains more experience and confidence in her craft. While her art is extremely recognizable from its bright color palette, something she says was influenced by her Colombian heritage, she also recognizes that she wants to evolve and change as an artist.

In Black Women, Citizenship, and the Making of Modern Cuba (University of Florida Press, 2021), Dr. Takkara Brunson examines the political strategies used by Afro-Cuban women between 1886 and 1959 to call for greater rights and opportunities for Afro-Cubans. Afro-Cuban women channeled their energy for Black rights through letter writing, sitting for photographs and comportment, founding their own organizations, and seeking and winning political offices in the Communist Party, to name a few of their strategies. While pursuing the political avenues available to them, Black women also navigated and had to contend with patriarchy and racelessness. In putting together this compelling story, Brunson undertook research in archives in Cuba and the United States. She hones in on the lives of particular women in each chapter to show how they advanced calls for Black citizenship and rights. Brunson builds on the work of Latin American and Cuban history as well as Black feminist scholarship to center Black women as critical protagonists in the struggle for Black rights and freedom. Dr. Takkara Brunson is an Associate Professor in the Department of History at Texas A&M University. Reighan Gillam is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Southern California. Learn more about your ad choices.

Sam and Emma host Ada Ferrer, Professor of History and Latin American and Caribbean Studies at New York University, to discuss her recent book Cuba: An American History, on how the constant pressure of American Imperialism has threatened the people and territory since its independence. They jump off from this question of why she dubs her work “An American History,” and how it works to trace the development of Cuba since early colonialism, particularly focusing on moments of increased intervention, from the boom in the slave trade on the island following the Haitian Revolution to the early founding fathers' desire to acquire it and the industries they could exploit. Moving into the mid-1800s, Professor Ferrer, Emma, and Sam look at the role of Cuban independence, which, despite its leaders seeing it as a check on American expansion, US officials attempted to claim affiliation with it, once again in hopes of exploiting the sugar and slave industries on the island, until the Civil War saw an end to much of that spirit. Exploring the transition into the 20th Century and an independent Cuba, Sam, Emma, and Ada dive into the Platt Amendment and how it cemented US intervention in Cuba whenever legislators saw fit, despite intense anti-imperialism and socialist views on the island, resulting in a variety of different periods of occupation culminating in another revolution to overthrow the Machado regime, and the democratic election of Batista, who, himself, would fall into a dictatorship bolstered by the US. Finally bubbling over with Castro's revolution, they cover how finally grasping true independence allowed for incredible development in social programs and general infrastructure, before they explore the effects of the 1990s economic crash in Cuba and the state of the cultural ongoings today. Sam and Emma also cover the wild week we could have in Congress with impending decisions on the debt ceiling, bipartisan bill, and reconciliation all likely to occur with the looming threat of a government shutdown. And in the Fun Half: Sam and Emma run through the various potential outcomes of the legislative agenda for this week, and how progressives can bolster their leverage and ensure the progression of their reconciliation bill. John from San Antonio calls in to discuss the lasting impact of the late MR Discord legend EJ on countless lives, Mike from Portland calls in to discuss de-Roganization, and Greg Abbott digs his feet into refusing exceptions for his abortion ban.
