Between Absurdity & Possibility: Envisioning Liberation in an Age of Nonsense

We would like to invite you to the 9th Annual CLACS Graduate Student Conference, taking place on Friday, February 28 and Saturday, February 29, 2020. It will feature original research from international and domestic scholars in English, Spanish, and Portuguese pertaining to this year's theme, "Between Absurdity & Possibility: Envisioning Liberation in an Age of Nonsense." This conference is free and open to the public. Interdisciplinary in 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.
