May 26-29, 2021
Join us for the second virtual Latin American Studies Association congress!
The global crisis highlighted by the expansion of COVID-19 over the entire planet has had dramatic consequences in Latin America, testing states’ capacity to protect their citizens. The effects of the disease have laid bare the structural shortcomings of the countries in the region and the persistence of inequality, exclusion, and authoritarianism.
The purpose of the 2021 LASA congress is to convene people who study the societies and cultures of Latin American and the Caribbean to reflect on globalization and its impacts on the lives of its inhabitants, the institutional architecture of its states, and the cultural dynamics on the continent. The management of the crisis, and the consequences for the most vulnerable, demonstrate the need to reflect on the causes of that vulnerability in both historical and contemporary terms.
The University of Arizona Press will be featured as a virtual exhibitor, so please be sure to visit our virtual booth to browse our recent Latin American Studies titles and find a great discount code.
