I'm pleased to announce a panel for the upcoming meeting of the Rocky Mountain Conference on Latin American Studies (RMCLAS), to be held April 4-7, 2018, in Reno, Nevada. 

The panel is titled "Law and Lawlessness under Authoritarianism," and we are currently soliciting proposals for papers that explore the functioning and/or non-functioning of the law and government institutions during authoritarian regimes in Latin America over the twentieth century. We welcome proposals covering any geographic region/scope and from any discipline.

Paper proposals must be submitted no later than December 29, 2017.

Proposals should be limited to no more than 300 words, and should include a working title and a brief summary of the paper's central argument. Submissions should also include a copy of the author's/authors' CV(s). Proposals can be sent directly to me (Edward Brudney) at

Please feel free to contact me with questions, or for additional information. For more details on the conference itself, see their website:
