Documenting the Impact of Covid-19 through Photography: Collective Isolation in Latin America Online Exhibition is open!

Click here to access the exhibit. Sponsored by the DRCLAS Arts, Culture, and Film Program and ReVista, the exhibit features 26 selected entries from the Open Call, including the four prizewinners from Peru, Mexico and Brazil.  Photojournalists and artists from Brazil, Uruguay, Perú Chile, México, Colombia, Panamá, El Salvador, Venezuela, Argentina, and Cuba contributed to the exhibit. There is an interesting balance between breathtaking "front line" scenes at hospitals and cemeteries, hardly seen city views that put in evidence the lockdown of much of our cities in Latinoamerica, and less obvious but intimately powerful images related to the challenges of daily/ domestic life during isolation. 




ReVista focuses on different themes related to Latin America. The magazine-length publication brings together different voices on each theme, highlighting the work of Harvard faculty, students, alumni and Visiting Scholars. The current issue is on bilingualism.

We also feature timely Spotlights, some of which will eventually become full-fledged issues. We just launched a Spotlight on Covid-19, in addition to our Spotlight on the Amazon.

Dear Readers,

The print issue of ReVista has temporarily been suspended until further notice due to budget cuts. Those of you who have subscribed to ReVista over the years know that we aim to create a community, and we will continue to do so online.

Student Views

Most students have returned home because of the Covid-19 virus. We hope to keep their presence here through our Student Views section. Undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to submit. Priority is given to Harvard students, but other contributions will be considered. To see what kind of articles we are looking for, you can find details on our Student Views home page.
