I am organizing a panel for the January 2015 CLAH meeting in New York. The topic of the panel is Police, Policing and Social Control in Modern Latin America. I am seeking panelists who are interested in:
a)The formation of police forces in Latin America in the 19th and 20th centuries from a social, political, institutional or cultural perspective;
b)Political and intellectual debates about police forces and policing;
c)Law enforcement in everyday life;
d)Gender, race, and class in the construction of policemen identities;
e)Intercontinental influence of policing models.
My paper will focus on the institutional history of the Peruvian Police in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
If you are interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with an abstract of your paper by January 10th, 2014.
