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.

2018 Congress Travel Funding Form

All participants are strongly encouraged to apply to their home and other institutions (e.g. government) for travel funds as early as possible.

Since it is expected that travel funding to attend the CALACS will be very limited, only registered graduate student presenting papers at the Conference may apply. Participants are more likely to be offered partial rather than full funding to participate. 

Applications for funding are to be made in an online form below. The deadline to apply for travel assistance is March 31, 2018.
