Program on Latin America and the Caribbean presents
Music, Peace, and Justice in the Americas: A Tribute to John
Please join the Program on Latin America and the Caribbean (PLACA)
to celebrate and honor the life of our dear colleague and friend, Professor of
Anthropology, John Burdick. John’s work on race, religion, and music in Brazil
and on peace and justice across the Americas inspires this PLACA musical
tribute. Mark your calendar to gather in Zoom with other PLACA friends to relax
together and enjoy listening to different musical performers throughout the
Fall and Spring semesters.

Colleen is an award-winning songwriter and Associate Professor of Spanish at SUNY Cortland. One of her passions is to interpret songs in the nueva canción tradition, a movement which, in addition to the beautiful melodies and poetic lyrics, also was and still is one of the “sound tracks” for social justice and change.
