When/Where: 22-23 March 2018 at the University’s Winchester campus.
Topics: The conference invites critical reflection on the history and current state of Latin American Studies in the UK and around the world. How and why is Latin American Studies organized and practiced differently in its various national and institutional locations? What can be learned from these differences? To what extent are such differences mediated by global networks of exchange? To what purposes or callings does Latin American Studies respond today? How might Latin American Studies in the UK engage or indeed drive global trends more effectively?
Keynote speaker will be Professor Carmen Diana Deere, Honorary Professor Emerita of the Latin American Faculty of Social Science (FLACSO-Ecuador).
