The Annual Meeting of the Latin American and Caribbean Section of the Southern Historical Association, November 4-7, 2010 Charlotte, North Carolina
The Latin American and Caribbean Section (LACS) of the Southern Historical Association welcomes individual papers and panels for its meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, November 2010.
LACS accepts papers and panels on all aspects of Latin American and Caribbean History, including the fields of the borderlands and the Atlantic World. Panels and papers that highlight the connections between people, cultures, and areas of these regions are especially welcome. Each year LACS also sponsors one panel, entitled “The Kimberly Hanger Memorial Panel,” which in general has some connection to Louisiana or New Orleans history and/or the topics of race, gender and the colonial borderlands and the Caribbean.
Submissions should include a 250-word abstract for each paper and a brief curriculum vitae for each presenter. We encourage faculty as well as advanced graduate students to submit panels and papers. Graduate students are eligible for the Ralph Lee Woodward Jr. Prize, awarded each year to the best paper presented by a graduate student in a panel organized by LACS.
Please note that the Program Committee may revise proposed panels. All panelists are required to be members of LACS. For information about membership, please visit the website: http://www.tnstate.edu/lacs/ or contact Michael LaRosa at Rhodes College at email@example.com.
