Brown University affiliates set to participate in 2017 LASA Congress in Lima, Peru

April 10, 2017

A large contingent of current and former Brown University faculty and students will be traveling to Lima, Peru to participate in the 2017 Latin American Studies Association (LASA) Congress from April 29 - May 1. The 2017 LASA Congress in Lima, Peru, will build on multiple transformations in LASA and in the field of Latin American studies by highlighting the theme of “Diálogos de Saberes/Dialogues of Knowledge.” With it, the Congress seeks to highlight a broad range of dialogues that move beyond the traditional academic disciplines and traditional knowledge producers, and are at the heart of Latin American studies today. For more information on this year's program and sheduled panels visit the LASA 2017 program website.

The following is a list of current and former Brown University affiliates that will be presenting during LASA 2017
