RMCLAS 2017 Annual Conference

Salt Lake City, Utah

The 64th Annual Conference of the Rocky Mountain Council for Latin American Studies will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Wednesday April 5th to Saturday April 8th, 2017.  The RMCLAS Annual Conference provides an opportunity for scholars and graduate students to share original research on Latin America. The conference will be held at the Hilton City Center in downtown Salt Lake City.

Call for Papers

Panels and paper proposals on any topic in Latin American Studies are welcome. In addition to panels that present original research, we also welcome panels and roundtable discussions that focus on other aspects of academic life, including pedagogy, career planning, and teaching. We encourage presentations from all disciplines including, but not limited to, Anthropology, Archaeology, Art History, Cultural Studies, Economics, Environmental Studies, Ethnomusicology, Film Studies, Gender Studies, History, Linguistics, Literature, Political Science, and Sociology.

We suggest that panels consist of a chair, at least three presenters, and a commentator (one of whom may be the chair and/or commentator). Papers can be presented in English, Spanish, or Portuguese.

Please fill out the panel proposal on the Google Form link here.  This form will also accommodate single-paper proposals. The deadline for panel and paper proposals is January 1, 2017.  Be sure to hit “submit” when you are done.  It is probably wise to prepare your panel proposal in your word processing program, then paste it into this form (to avoid losing info etc.).   You should have a backup of your proposal in any case.

Membership in RMCLAS and conference registration is required to participate in the conference.

Sincerely,

Jeff

Finally, please remember to register for the conference. If you are planning on registering in person please bring cash or check.

Hasta Santa Fe!
