2021 CALACS Congress will be held virtually
The Board of Directors of the Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies together with the local Program Committee at the University of Toronto regretfully announce that due to public health concerns, the 2021 CALACS Congress will be held virtually. We expect to gather in-person at the University of Toronto for our 2022 Congress.
Given that the 2021 conference will be held entirely online, no registration fees will be assessed, but all participants must be members of CALACS to appear in the program. The proposal deadline of January 22, 2021 remains unchanged, and we particularly welcome completed panel proposals addressing the theme “Security and Insecurity in Latin America and the Caribbean,” as well as proposals on any subject regarding Latin America and the Caribbean.
Code of Professional Conduct at Officially Sanctioned Activities of the Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CALACS)
Approved by CALACS Board of Directors 23 July, 2021.
For Virtual Congress 2021:
CALACS convenes an annual congress and other officially sanctioned events for the purposes of professional development, scholarly and educational interchange in the spirit of free inquiry and free expression, and the expansion of information on and interest in Latin America and the Caribbean. Harassment of colleagues, students, fellow participants, or staff at these events undermines the principle of equity at the heart of these professional forums. They are also inconsistent with principles of free inquiry and free expression and detrimental to the maintenance of an inclusive, vibrant, and engaged intellectual community. Discriminatory behaviours including racist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, ageist actions have no place in CALACS events and are considered to be serious forms of professional misconduct. As in all things, CALACS relies upon the respect, good will, and flexibility of members and participants. Principles of fairness, equity, and solidarity are keys to the success of our annual conference and will continue to guide our organization in the present and future.
