CALACS Congress

The CALACS Congress is held every year. The Congress showcases the research and the activities of our members and invited guests. Like CALACS itself, the Congress is interdisciplinary and open to papers and panels in many fields, covering diverse issues, of importance to the region. As well as tracks related to the theme of the Congress, there are generally many other tracks defined according to contemporary categories of research, and all are invited to present work on any aspect of Latin American scholarship. Panels are particularly encouraged, but individual papers will be considered as well.
