Living in Las Americas: Remembrance, Resilience, and Hope
November 4 - November 5
The New England Council of Latin American Studies (NECLAS) invites you to participate in our annual meeting at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, CT, on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5, 2022. This year, we seek to explore how Latin American societies and Latinx communities in the United States have dealt with enormous loss, mobilized to rebuild, and imagined what is possible two years into the global pandemic. How have they addressed crises in the past, or braced for imminent crises, through innovation in science and technology, public policy, music, art, and literature? We also welcome proposals outside of the specific theme which consider topics related to Latin America and U.S. Latinx communities. We welcome submissions and proposals for posters, panels, roundtables, professionalization workshops, and book presentations from across disciplines in the natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, visual and plastic arts, translation, as well as from the fields of law, business, public policy and health, social work, education, among others, that have bearing on Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and Latinx populations. Please send your abstracts and proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2022.
