MACLAS 2012 at American University: Call for Papers
The Middle Atlantic Council of Latin American Studies will hold its annual meeting at American University in Washington, DC from March 22-24, 2012. The theme of this year’s conference is “Latin America: Hopes, Dreams and Reality after the Washington Consensus.” The Program Committee invites faculty, students, and practitioners to submit individual papers and panel proposals that illustrate how the people and the countries of Latin America are responding to current challenges in light of the region’s cultural, political and economic heritage and within the changing international economic and political environment. Of course, papers dealing with all aspects of Latin American studies are welcome. Please submit a 250-word abstract for individual papers or complete panel proposals (one 250 word abstract for the panel) in English or Spanish by December 21, 2011 to Program Director Jim Baer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be sure to include a title, your name (and the name of all participants if a panel), your institution and your role (faculty, student or other title).
Additionally, the organizers will consider a limited number of workshop proposals that aim at informing students and faculty on issues such as study abroad programs in Latin America, academic publishing, the road to tenure, and the use of technology in the classroom.
MACLAS offers prizes for the best undergraduate and graduate papers submitted, as well as prizes to the membership at large for best article and best book published in the last two years.
Finally, graduate students are encouraged to apply for a Christina Turner Graduate Student Travel Award to help reimburse travel and lodging costs for the conference. The number of awards is supplemented this year by American University.
