2017 LAGO Conference: Call for Abstracts

“Knowledge and Power”
LAGO Graduate Student Conference
January 27th, 28th, and 29th, 2017
New Orleans, Louisiana

Tulane University’s Latin American Graduate Organization (LAGO)’s 2017 Graduate Conference: “Knowledge and Power” will be held January 27-29 in New Orleans. At the conference, we encourage participants to engage in an interdisciplinary discussion on subjects related to inequalities in the creation and distribution of information – cultural, historical, empirical, and digital – in the Americas and the Caribbean. In addition to discussing social, economic, and political barriers to knowledge production and access, we seek to highlight a broad range of dialogues that move beyond the boundaries between traditional academic disciplines.

Conference participants will be able to meet and dialogue with Latin Americanist graduate scholars, faculty, and community leaders from around the world, explore New Orleans, and experience the city’s unique Mardi Gras season.

If your paper submission has been accepted for the 2017 LAGO conference, please fill out the following form and pay the $25 registration fee by December 20, 2016 to confirm your participation.

Pay the $25 registration fee here if you have not already done so.

If you will not be presenting at the 2017 LAGO Conference, we thank you for your interest in our event. While the paper submission deadline has passed, we would love for you to join us in January. The conference will be free to attend and open to the public.
