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.

Nominations for the 2017 CALACS Book Prize

The Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS) invites submissions for the first annual prize for the best monograph in Latin American and Caribbean Studies published by a CALACS member during the previous year.

The 2017 prize will be awarded during the 2018 CALACS meeting in Montreal. Entries must have an imprint date of 2017. There is no need to submit a letter of nomination for the award, simply ensure that membership is current and send a copy of the book (a total of 3) to each of the following members of the review committee by January 15, 2018:
