The Latin American Graduate Student Association (LAGO) of Tulane University invite you to submit an individual paper or a panel for our conference entitled "Space and Identity: The Politics of Expression in Latin America."
The history of Latin American has maintained a legacy of struggle at the intersection of space and identity. The manifestation of this struggle has been expressed in various forms ranging from political, social mobilization, artistic expression, literary movements, and multifaceted trends in music and popular culture.

Please send papers to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 23, 2009.
