Latin American, Iberian, and Latinx Studies at a Crossroads

About This Event

“Latin American, Iberian, and Latinx Studies at a Crossroads” is a one-day in-person symposium to reflect on the state of these fields, and their intersections, in a time of uncertainty but also hope. The event will consist of three distinct types of sessions: Two keynote addresses “Research Showcase” “In the Classroom" In addition to inviting participants to reflect on what research and teaching in our fields look like in our current times, this activity is also meant to resume the in-person work of the LELACS Working Group, after a pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
