Over pizza in Stein Hall, students in the economics class Latin American Economic Development put on a pseudo Pecha Kucha night titled “20×20 by 17x17x17.” Pecha Kucha is a concise presentation format in which each speaker brings 20 slides and speaks about a topic, and each slide is shown for only 20 seconds. “We added 17X17X17 — 17 students, 17 countries, 17 issues of Latin American Economic Development,” says Robert Reinauer, visiting instructor in economics. Invitees included students and faculty members from the economics and Latin American and Latino Studies departments.
