The Latin American and Caribbean Section (LACS) of the Southern Historical Association welcomes individual paper and panel proposals for the SHA’s 86th Annual Meeting to be held in Memphis, Tennessee, November 19-22, 2020.

 

LACS accepts papers and panels on all aspects of Latin American and Caribbean history, including the fields of the borderlands and the Atlantic World. Panels and papers that highlight the connections between people, cultures, and regions are especially welcome. Submissions should include a 250-word abstract for each paper and brief curriculum vitae for each presenter. We encourage faculty as well as advanced graduate students to submit panels and papers.  Presenters who will need AV equipment must request them as soon as the call from SHA appears.  No late requests will be honored. 

 

Graduate students are eligible for the Ralph Lee Woodward Jr. Prize, awarded each year for the best paper presented by a graduate student in a panel organized by LACS.

 

Please note that the program committee may need to revise proposed panels. All panelists are required to be members of LACS before presenting.
