68th Annual Meeting of the Southeastern Council of Latin American Studies


15-18 April 2021 

Proposal Submission Deadline: 1 November 2020

Submit your abstract at this link.

SECOLAS is pleased to announce a call for paper and panel abstract submissions for its 68th Annual Meeting, held in cyberspace from Thursday, 15 April thru Sunday, 18 April 2020.

SECOLAS invites faculty members, independent scholars, and students to submit panel and individual paper proposals for participation in the conference. The organization welcomes submissions on any aspect of Latin American and/or Caribbean Studies.

Panels and roundtables are particularly welcomed.

SECOLAS is planning this conference to be held in cyberspace.

Public health conditions permitting, there may be a small in-person component of the annual meeting that would be held at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. If such an in-person element happens, participation in it will be entirely voluntary, and we will accommodate all presenters, panels, and roundtables in the preferred delivery method.

Graduate student presenters will be eligible to submit their paper for the Edward H. Moseley Student Paper Award for the best paper presented at the SECOLAS meeting. 

After the conference, all presenters will be eligible to submit their paper for publication consideration in the SECOLAS Annals issue of The Latin Americanist, an international, peer-reviewed journal published by the University of North Carolina Press for SECOLAS.
