ABOUT THE SOCIETY FOR LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES
Founded in 1964, the Society for Latin American Studies is a learned society that studies all aspects of Latin American society and culture. It is one of the leading Latin American studies organisations in Europe, with around 400 members. While most are academics and PhD students, members also include diplomats, journalists, and research analysts from business and non-governmental organisations.
SLAS and PILAS (the postgraduate arm of SLAS) both hold popular and well-attended annual conferences each year. SLAS also compiles and edits BLAR, the Bulletin of Latin American Research, which each member receives as part of their membership.
