The LASA Continental Congresses provide an opportunity to collaborate and work on the many interesting theoretical and practical problems presented in each continent in relation to Latin America.
These congresses feature meaningful new meeting opportunities that allow for deep dialogue and interactions through smaller, highly focused gatherings in different regions of the world, thus complementing the LASA International Congress.
LASA membership is not required to submit a proposal and participate actively in this event. We are working with several groups of scholars, which allows to waive the membership requirement.
If you submitted an individual proposal or a session for LASA2023 whose topic is related to any of the tracks of LASA/Africa 2023, we invite you to submit it to this Congress as well, for its evaluation.
