Liberalism and Its Discontents
January 28th, 29th, and 30th, 2016

Tulane University’s Latin American Graduate Organization (LAGO) 2016 conference is titled “Liberalism and Its Discontents.” At the conference, participants will engage in an interdisciplinary discussion on the subject of liberalism in the Americas. More specifically, scholarly works will explore and critique the influence of Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment thought in Latin America and its Diaspora. Through this conversation, we seek to trouble notions of “discovery,” “progress,” “development,” and “democracy” and critically examine how these terms are used in the field of Latin American Studies. Paper presentations will be in English, Spanish, and/or Portuguese.

Please register for the 2016 Conference below. The registration deadline is December 20th, 2015.
