The conference series of the winter semester 15/16 has succesfully come to an end

„Values education in the University: Developing the concept of humanistic education in Costa Rica“. This is the title of the conference imparted on 27/01/2016 by Dr. Susanne Müller-Using, scientific director of the Costa Rica Center. This was the final conference as part of the interdisciplinary series of conferences „Entre las Américas / Between the Americas“ during the winter term 2015/2016. The Costa Rica Center and the Faculty of Language and Literature invited to participate on this series during this semester.

As a cultural area, the Central American region is characterized by sociopolitical and cultural conflicts, since North American and Central American political interests and ideologies often diverge. However, this cultural area situated between the two hemispheres, not only geographically but also politically, economically and not least culturally, has up to now been rather neglected by research on North America and Latin America. Hence the series of lectures "Entre las Américas / Between the Americas” for which well-known scientists specializing in research on Central America could be won. Their contributions offer different key topics within the areas of cultural, literary and political studies and examine the subjects from different points of view.
The series of lectures aims at defining the Central American region as an in-between area where different spheres of interest and control compete with each other, but also overlap and even merge. It represents a specific contribution of the cultural and literary studies at Osnabrück University to the research of the University’s interdisciplinary Costa Rica Center.
