Middle Atlantic Council of Latin American Studies
Call for Papers - MACLAS 2010
Atlantic Council on Latin American Studies Annual Conference
Struggles for Independence and Justice
Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD
2010 is both
the bicentennial of Latin American independence movements and the centennial of
the Mexican Revolution, yet many of the goals of those movements remain
unfulfilled as peoples in the region continue to struggle with dependency and
social inequality. The program committee invites faculty, students and
practitioners to submit individual paper and panel proposals that are
particularly concerned with the notions of independence, equality and
empowerment. Of course, papers dealing with other aspects of Latin American
studies are most welcome.
Additionally, the organizers will consider a limited number of workshop
proposals that aim at informing students and faculty on issues such as study
abroad programs in Latin America, academic publishing, the road to tenure, and
the use of technology in the classroom.
a 250-word abstract for individual papers or complete panel proposals (250 word
abstracts for all 4 papers) in English or Spanish to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2009.
Presentations should be between 15 and 20 minutes long. Please be sure to include a title, your
name (and the name of all participants if a panel), your institution and your
role (faculty, student or other title).
