Congress 2024: Call for Proposals

Uncertainty as Opportunity: Beyond Polarization and Inequalities?

 Call for Papers 

Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies 2024 Congress  

Montréal, Québec  

The 2024 Congress of the Canadian Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies comes with the familiar context of challenges and opportunities. Across political, cultural, economic, and ecological experiences, peoples of the region continue to shape and be shaped by social mobilizations, the climate crises, and shifting geopolitical coordinates.. CALACS and our local partners, Équipe de recherche sur l’inclusion et la gouvernance en Amérique Latine (ÉRIGAL), invite papers and hope to host conversations that not only explore the challenges of the present moment, but that also consider how people navigate circumstances, work together, find joy, and express frustration in the face of often daunting circumstances.  

The Program Committee seeks to make the conference a diverse and inclusive event. We invite proposals from students, academics, community researchers, cultural producers, and activists who study the Caribbean, Latin America, and their diasporas—both past and present. We welcome individual paper proposals as well as roundtables, workshops, and other modes of presentation and engagement.

See you in Montreal! 

Proposals (of 300 words or less) can be submitted in Spanish, English, French or Portuguese.

Deadline for submissions of panels or individual papers: December 15, 2023.
