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 ebrudney@indiana.edu.

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