I know, I was thinking it too - we don't hear nearly enough about Latin America. Here to remedy that is Florencia Mallon, professor of modern Latin American history at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Mallon will speak on "Phantom Guerrillas, Buried Weapons and Mapuche Subversives: Excavating the History of the Chilean Coup in Nehuente," presented by the Latin American Studies department. The talk will be held in the Social Sciences building, Room 222, from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mallon will also lead a roundtable discussion today at noon in the Douglass building, Room 102.
Turn your head left. Now right. Now left. Now right. Congratulations, you're ready to watch a tennis match. Go see the UA men's tennis team square off against Loyola Marymount today at 1 p.m. Basketball and football, after all, are not the only UA sports that deserve fan support. The serve-and-volley will take place at the Robson Tennis Center, 900 N. Martin Ave. Admission to the matches is free of charge.
So you've learned more about Latin America: now what? Raise your awareness of something a little more local. As part of Arizona Archeology Awareness Month (you know you've been waiting for it), UA's Arizona State Museum presents a lecture by J. Jefferson Reid on "History of Archeology in the American Southwest: The Last 25 Years." The lecturing begins at 7 p.m. at the Tucson Main Library, 101 N. Stone Ave. Admission is open and free to the public. For more information, call 626-8381.
It's a jazz-licious time at the UA this week, and never mind that that's not a word. Arizona Jazz Week, presented by the School of Music and Dance, kicked off yesterday and continues its series of events today with a faculty concert. At 7:30 p.m., faculty members Jeff Haskell, Tom Ervin, Jim Taylor, Kelland Thomas, Robin Horn and Jay Rees will showcase their jazz-licious talents (gotta love that word). The performance is at Crowder Hall in the Fine Arts Complex. General admission is $10, $4 for students. For tickets, call 621-2998.
Me write announcements, newspaper in, good. Uh oh, looks like I need some writing help. Thankfully, Kendra Gaines of the Writing Skills Improvement Program is there to help.

It is free and open to everyone, even lowly Catcalls writers. For more information, contact Donna Rabuck at 621-5849.
