The Conference
The Student Conference on Latin America, organized by the Institute of Latin American Studies Student Association (ILASSA) at The University of Texas at Austin, is an interdisciplinary forum for students involved in Latin American research topics. The conference provides students with the opportunity to present research activities, develop presentational skills, exchange ideas and information, and meet other scholars from around the world. The conference, now in its 29th year, is the oldest and largest student conference in the field of Latin American Studies.
Abstract Requirements
ILASSA invites students to submit for acceptance a single-page abstract of a paper (300 words or less) within the field of Latin American Studies. The abstract will enable us to select papers for presentation and to organize panels for the conference.
Abstract Submission
Abstracts should be submitted online in order to facilitate the submission process for everyone – especially for participants outside the United States. Hard copies of abstracts will not be accepted.
The final deadline for submission of abstracts is October 24, 2008. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by November 5, 2008. Students invited to participate will have until January 5, 2008 to submit final papers along with their registration fee. During the conference, each student will have approximately 15 minutes to present his or her work in a panel arranged around a common theme.
