We would like to invite you to the 8th Annual CLACS Graduate Student Conference, taking place on Friday March 1st and Saturday March 2nd 2019. Both international and domestic graduate scholars are encouraged to submit their research pertaining to this year’s theme “On Heritage and Struggle: Deconstructing Neoliberal Assumptions and Realities”. This conference is free and open to the public. Interdisciplinary in its nature, this conference aims to promote inventive discussions and intellectual re-conceptualizations that foster a novel approach to Latin American and Caribbean studies. This conference is designed to showcase research that examines and challenges presuppositions of the diverse social, political, cultural, economic, technological, and environmental themes present in the region. It may also serve as a space to reimagine the conventional narratives projected onto the region. We invite graduate students of diverse backgrounds and interests to submit abstracts exploring:
