UIW to host Las Hermanas Symposium

The University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) is hosting “Las Hermanas: The Struggle is One,” March 19-21 in the UIW’s Seddon Recital Hall. Tickets for the event are $50.

This interdisciplinary symposium will honor the history, development and legacy of Las Hermanas, a grassroots Latina movement formed 40 years ago to challenge and change the church and its role in society. The conference promises a rich program, including outstanding keynote speakers, academic papers, sharing of stories, celebration in the spirit of Las Hermanas and an opportunity to visit the new Heritage Center of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word.

Featured speakers include Dr. Lara Medina, (California State University, Northridge) Sister Yolanda Tarango, CCVI, Dr. Timothy Matovina (Notre Dame) and Dr. Theresa Torres (University of Missouri-Kansas.)
