SLAS President’s AGM Report
Jens R Hentschke (Newcastle) at Glasgow University in April 2017

It is a pleasure to be here at Glasgow University, and I would like to welcome you to the AGM. This is the forum at which SLAS officers and BLAR editors report about the health and development of our Society.

As many of you will remember, we had a very successful conference at Liverpool last year, and I would like to thank again Marieke Riethoff and her team. As with Aberdeen, I wrote to the VC, Dean, and Head of School to express our gratitude for the support we received from the host institution. SLAS always hopes that such an international conference also highlights the significance of Latin American Studies.

This is the third time since 2011 that we have come to Scotland for our annual meeting, and it is the second time that Glasgow acts as its host. When SLAS convened here in 1991, David Stansfield was its President, and it is a great pleasure to welcome him today.

This University has a long tradition in Latin American Studies. It was home to one of the five Parry Institutes of the 1960s, and today two of the conference organisers, Mo Hume and Eamon McCarthy, coordinate the Glasgow Latin American Research Network. I would like to thank them, as well as Karen Siegel and Beth Pearson, for organising the 2017 conference and making it such an inspiring and enjoyable event. More
