SLAS Annual Conference 2019

In line with previous conferences, SLAS2019 will be an opportunity for explorations of any aspect of Latin American Studies, from any theoretical and disciplinary perspective. We have an optional conference theme that speakers are invited to address, which focuses on the Politics of Identity in Latin America.

This choice of topic is inspired by the vibrant waves of feminist activism that have been gaining ground across Latin America in recent years; movements which, by giving voice to women’s concerns and demanding respect of their human rights, are also making important contributions to social acceptance of difference and diversity, to improving poverty, and facilitating peace – thus emphasising the interconnectedness of all aspects of identity politics.

Any informal queries can be addressed as well to the following contact persons:
Dr Clara
Dr Emma
