In line with previous conferences, SLAS2024 will be an opportunity for explorations of any aspect of Latin American Studies, from any disciplinary and theoretical perspective. We have an optional conference theme that speakers are invited to address, which is:
In/Justice in Latin America and the Caribbean
The choice of theme comes from a need we feel to address persistent inequalities and struggles, but also successes, in the search for social justice amid an ongoing climate of antagonism and polarization. As a field, Latin American Studies has always been concerned with the societal crises of our times. We invite you to address in/justices from any disciplinary, theoretical or methodological vantage point. From gendered and racialized injustices, epistemic violence to climate change and political resistance, we aim to bring together a variety of critical perspectives and practices. In addition to academic panels and a thought-provoking keynote lecture, the conference also encourages the submission of roundtables that combine academia with advocacy, activism or the arts.
This year the SLAS conference will also include an additional day for postgraduates organised by PILAS (Postgraduates in Latin American Studies). Note that these are two separate events. In the submission system, you will be able to indicate whether your abstract is meant for SLAS, PILAS or both.
The tracks for this year’s conference are:
- History, Literature, Media & Cultural Studies
- Politics, Institutions, Identity & Social Movements
- Inequalities, Violence, Cities & Migration
- Ecologies, Economics & Natural Resources
